A tank separates it from the Fazlul Huq Muslim Hall. Dhaka Hail is another building of this period. Originally, it was a hostel of Dhaka College students, but since the establishment of the University, it has been appropriated by it for the students. After the partition of 1947 a portion of it was given over to the students of Fazlul Huq Hall owing to the lack of Hindu students. Now the whole thing is under Dhaka Hall [It was named Shahidullah Hall after Dr. Muhammad Shahidullah after his death in 1969]. Its architecture is exactly the same as Fazlul Huq Muslim Hall. Dr. M. Rahman is the present provost of the Hall.
