A concept used in Universities in the UK and presumably throughout the world. Works on the theory that the best way to keep students quiet is to stick them all into a dense warren of box-like rooms, with plenty of opportunities for interbreeding and drug-taking. People who live in halls generally claim that the parties are better than you will find anywhere else. Those who live out say that due to the size of the rooms, you only need 4 people to feel like you're having a great party.
