Living in the halls of residence
A room in the halls is so much more than a place to live; it comes with a built-in social life, full support and endless opportunities.
- Make it your ownYou’ll never have to share a room with another student, so you can make your room uniquely yours.
- Everything you needResidents share bathroom and kitchenette facilities. Fully catered halls have a dining room where breakfast, lunch and dinner are served. All halls have lounges with TV’s, computer rooms with quiet study areas, and free wi-fi.
- Support and OrientationThe beginning of the year kicks off with a full orientation for all residents. This is where you can get to know your Residential Assistant (RA) and the other people in your hall.
- Always something to doFrom inter-hall sports competitions to shopping trips to going to watch the Chiefs play, you’ll quickly learn that living in the halls means there is always something exciting to do.
