The student housing unit is one of three units that fall under the department of Student affairs. The mandate of the Student Housing unit is “to provide safe, secure and accessible student accommodation suitable for living and learning”. This mandate is executed through the administration of residential life programmes, training and supervision of staff and House Representative Committee members.


Our vision is to produce dynamic, innovative, and goal-driven graduates that will contribute positively to the society through providing an inclusive and diverse supportive living and learning environment.


Our mission is to provide safe, clean, and well-maintained residences as living and learning spaces conducive for our students to thrive and succeed. Our residence life programmes are there to create an engaged and supportive environment that promotes academic, personal, and professional development of our students.
