After admissions at the university, students are mostly left with the option of choosing between traditional halls or hostels as their preferred accommodation.
What are the available alternatives?
On the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology Campus, there are six residence halls and a number of hostels. Queen Elizabeth II Hall, Unity Hall, Independence Hall, Republic Hall, University Hall, and Africa Hall are among them. All six residence halls are mixed (Male and Female). Two of the five hostels are for postgraduate students, one for both undergraduate and graduate students, and one for both undergraduate and graduate students. They are managed by the Ghana Universities Staff Superannuation Scheme (GUSSS).
International Students’ Accommodation in University Residential/Hostel Facilities
As part of the University’s efforts to improve the security of our students, particularly international students, and to provide an enabling residential facility and environment for their studies and stay, it is the University’s policy that all international students be accommodated on campus in the University’s Halls of Residence, GUSSS, Hall Seven, and SRC Hostels Facilities. Any International Student who stays outside of the designated areas commits a crime.
The University is unable to guarantee housing for all students (especially continuing students). As a result, the majority of students live in private sector housing (hostels), the majority of which are located outside of the University Campus. However, the majority of these hostels are within walking distance of the University Campus.
In Kumasi, students of KNUST can choose from a variety of private hostel accommodations. These range from hostels with shared kitchen and bathroom facilities to flats with private bathrooms and small kitchenettes in the study bedrooms. Some hostels even have air conditioners and internet access in the study rooms. They are all self-contained. Kumasi is a fantastic city to live in, and living away from the University will give you the best opportunity to experience the city’s vibrant and diverse nature. Private hostel accommodation, on the other hand, is difficult to find and prohibitively expensive in Kumasi.
More detailed information, including a list of private hostels, their locations, facilities and services, and rents, is available from the Dean of Students Office’s Students Housing and Residence Life Unit.
How are residential facilities managed?
The University currently has six residence halls. Each of the GUSSS, Graduate Students, Credit Union, and SRC have a hostel on campus.
On-campus, Ghana Hostels Limited also has a residential facility. The three are managed in a different manner than the main halls. Each Hall is governed by a Hall Council comprised of Senior and Junior members.
The Hall Master is the Hall’s Executive Head, who is assisted by a Senior Tutor. In addition, there is a Hall Bursar and other support staff. The number of students in a room is determined by the Hall authorities. The Committee of Hall Administrators is made up of the Hall authorities from the various Halls and is in charge of developing common policies.
