Peter Green Hall

History of Peter Green Hall

The Halifax Student Housing Society (HSHS) is a non-profit organization founded in 1965 by a group of Dalhousie married students. Their goal was to offer students and their families comfortable and affordable accommodation with a family atmosphere. This goal is accomplished through the operation of Peter Green Hall and the Peter Green Hall Children's Centre (PGHCC). Peter Green Hall (PGH) is the name of the 112 unit apartment building this co-operative built.

Peter Green Hall is now owned by Dalhousie University and is leased and operated by the Halifax Student Housing Society. The Society consists of members who are tenants at Peter Green Hall.
