Provision of Accomodation in September 2015

The University College student population has increased tremendously in the last few years. This has strained the available accommodation space for students within the University College.

As a result, priority for accommodation will be given to first year first semester students. Alternative accommodation may be sought from the following hostels that have been inspected and recommended by the management.
