In AmE we use "dormitory" or "residence hall". I was a resident advisor (RA) in college and the facilities were called residence halls.
What is the most widely used British English word for dormitory (AmE), i.e. a place of residence on the territory of the university for British university students who don't live at home? Is it a hall of residence?
If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)
I am not a teacher.
Yes, it is a hall of residence.
In BrE a dormitory is usually a large room shared by a number of people.
