Halls Of Residence 

Student’s accommodation is of prime importance to the University as it plays a crucial role in the lives of the students. Unfortunately, the University halls accommodate a small fraction of the student’s population.
The University has a total of five (5) halls for student’s residence; three of which are on the main campus and the remaining two on the Adako-Jachie campus of the University. 

Ashanti and Liberty halls are the two male halls while Pat Carless is the female hall on campus. These halls are reserved for the first year and physically challenged students. 

The SRC and GETfund halls which are both mixed halls admit students at all levels. The University has provided a subsidized shuttle system which conveys students to and from the main campus for lectures. 

Private Hostels 

Due to the limited number of beds at our 5 halls of residence, the Office took upon itself to negotiate with Private Hostel Owners/Proprietors in the Asafo/Amakom and Adako Jachie environs to secure accommodation for our students, so far, the Office has been able to secure Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with three (3) of such hostels, that is, Granny Hostel, JB Hostel and Scholars Hostel). 


The Halls of Residence are managed by Hall Masters/Mistress and are supported by Deputy Hall Masters/Mistress and Porters. There are twenty (20) porters headed by a Head Porter.

The Chaplaincy has an outstanding choir and a cultural troupe, which perform at all official functions of the University.
