World famous cosmologist, Professor Stephen Hawking, joined members of the College for the opening of the Stephen Hawking room on Saturday 17th October. The seminar room is a ground floor room on “P” staircase, overlooking the iconic Latham Lawn which leads to the river terrace.

Stephen was pleased to be honoured in this way: “As much as I would like to say that I spent all my early Cambridge research career at Trinity Hall thinking about the universe and everything, I spent some of my time enjoying this beautiful setting by the river. It is therefore a pleasure to be back in my old college and a privilege to have this room overlooking Latham Lawn named in my honour.  I hope that the next generation of cosmologists, and of course other Trinity Hall scholars, gain inspiration from working in this space.”
