The Hall consists of three buildings: Wardlaw, a listed building acquired in 1947, which continues to be open to lady students only; Old Wing, the original hall; and the modern Lumsden Wing, which contains the central dining room. The amenities include libraries and an oak panelled common room.

University Hall recently underwent a major refurbishment, which was completed in 2009.
