Description
Toad Hall is a residential hall on campus at the Australian National University in Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, Australia. It was established in 1973. While primarily a Hall for post-graduate students, in 2010 Toad Hall has 24 under-graduate students of a total of 230 residents. It is located at the corner of Barry Drive and Kingsley Street, Acton. Sullivans Creek and the Drill Hall Gallery are nearby. The Toad Hall residence was designed by internationally acclaimed architect John Andrews (architect), and is listed in the Royal Australian Institute of Architects Register of Significant Twentieth Century Architecture and on the Commonwealth Heritage List. John Andrews' other significant works include Gund Hall, the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University. The University Council allowed the hall of residence to be named Toad Hall following the recommendation of the first residents of the hall where the setting, with the long line of willow trees between the hall and Sullivans Creek, was evocative of Kenneth Grahame's children's novel, The Wind in the Willows.
