Halls of Residence

The Student Village

The Student Village is divided into separate quarters for men, women and married couples. There are 13 Halls of Residence; 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.
