Keep Birks BIRKS

Following the demolition and rebuilding of Birks Halls, rumour has it that they\'re planning to rename it too. Even before it was Birks Halls, it was Birks Grange - so please sign this petition to make sure it stays BIRKS! When we\'ve collected enough signatures we\'ll forward it on to the university. NB Although you are asked for your e-mail address, this is only to verify that the same person doesn\'t sign twice!! YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS WON\'T BE PASSED ON TO THE UNIVERSITY! Update: 90 signatures so far! Please keep passing the link on to your fellow Birks ex-residents. Quote of the day: \"Brutal architecture. Fond memories.\"


This petition is being run by previous Birks residents.


Visit which has photos before and after the demolition, along with a \"WHICH WAS THE BEST HOUSE\" poll (the answer, of course, is Haldon...) Suppose we\'d better link to the university as well...

    9 years ago Comments: I would be a crying shame to lose the Birks name. It seems as though the new building may have lost some of the old Birks spirit (due to attempts to make all Exeter Uni accommodation available at extortionate prices) but the Birks name should last forever. Birks had the best atmosphere of any halls on campus - I spent one of the best years of my life living there!
