With a range of options to choose from, you can find the perfect housing option to match your lifestyle and budget. 

The University's tradition includes student residences, which serve as an integral part of the education system rather than just a housing provision. By fostering independence and close interaction with students from diverse backgrounds, these residences effectively integrate social and intellectual aspects of students' lives, providing a valuable opportunity for holistic education. Students are encouraged to take full advantage of such a precious opportunity to actively engage in a variety of activities to enhance their personal abilities, including leadership skills, communication, social skills and intellectual capacity.

The residences come in varying sizes and characters, each with its own distinctive features and varying sizes. While double rooms are the majority, single rooms are also available, albeit in limited numbers. To ensure maximum comfort, air conditioning is provided in all rooms. Additionally, all halls provide common rooms, recreational facilities and serene study spaces. Communal toilet and bathroom facilities are also available for use. Moreover, each hall reserves a certain number of spots specifically for non-local students.
