The Student Village

The Student Village is divided into separate quarters for men and women. There are 13 Halls of Residence; 24 single and 10 double rooms for females, and 37 single and 9 double rooms for males. There are no married quarters as yet. Within the Village grounds is located the TV room, the medical clinic and the laundry. The farm, dining hall, and classrooms are only a 5 minute walk from your living quarters.

All rooms have a bed, a wall-mounted bookshelf, a table, a chair and a closet. The double rooms are set up for double occupancy with wall fans as an added feature.

Resident Assistants (RA) are appointed at the beginning of the semester and responsible for the overall supervision of the house’s activities as well as the welfare of the house’s residents.

RA’s are issued with an electric jug, iron, telephone (internal calls only) and cleaning equipment, basic first aid essentials and candles.

Housekeeping and Laundry Facilities

The cleaner supervises the staff responsible for the cleanliness of the common rooms and shared areas in the houses as well as for the weekly supply of fresh bed linen. Residents are responsible for cleaning their own rooms and for their personal laundry.

Each hall has washtubs and a clothes line for washing and drying clothes. Alternatively the laundry is open to students Monday - Friday from 8.00a.m - 3.30p.m. Please note following student rates per load. Always ask for a receipt.

  • Washing - $5.00
  • Drying - $5.00

The campus has a 24 hour, 7 day a week security service. Security Officers provide general protection of people and property on campus, but both staff and students are expected to take responsibility for their own safety and the security of their personal belongings.

Security Officers are posted at the main gate, patrol the campus regularly and are expected to submit written reports on any irregular events observed during their patrol.

Issues occurring after hours, including lost/misplaced room keys, should seek the assistance of the Security Officers on duty.

The Student Village is your home away from home. Living away from home, especially for the first year students, can be both exciting as well as daunting. The Alafua Campus Student Village Manual for Residents, sets your boundaries and within those boundaries you can still have a great time, make your mark and return home with honor!
