How do I apply for accommodation?

First year registered undergraduates will be attended for student accommodation on campus on a first- in, first served basis. The student room allocations for first years is on a proportional basis across the four faculties of the University.

After academic registration, first years must proceed to the Student Housing section with their proof of registration and student cards, where they would confirm the availability of space in residences. The university has a limited number of bed-spaces on its campuses. Those who will not be accommodated on the campus student accommodation should look for an alternative accommodation elsewhere.  Please note that to pay an upfront initial deposit for student residence does not mean you will be allocated a room in residences.
