KNUST: Hostel And Accommodation Available For Both Foreign And Ghanaians Students

What are the available alternatives?
On the University 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 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 the list of private hostels, their locations, facilities and services, as well as rents, are available at the Students Housing and Residence life Unit at the Dean of Students Office.

Non-Resident Students Facilities

On Campus, there are three (3) Non-Resident facilities. One is behind “Club B” (near the College of Art and Social Sciences), while the other two are in the main Faculty Area. They all have reading rooms, bathrooms, and lockers for students to keep their books in. Two of these facilities have TV/entertainment rooms that are linked to a 24-hour Multi Choice DSTV transmission.
These facilities are intended to serve as learning and resting areas for non-resident students during their lunch breaks and free periods on Campus. Indeed, the facilities are highly patronized by non-resident students especially during examination periods when they operate 24 hour basis.

How are residential facilities administered?

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 each Hall, and it develops common policies for all of the Halls.

Akufo Addo’s Free SHS Girls Came Back To School Pregnant – Headmistress Blames The Policy

List Of Top 10 Senior High Schools With The Freshest Girls
Kwahu Nkwatia Presbyterian Senior High School headmistress, Mrs Cythia Anim, reported the worrying situation in the Eastern part of the country. According to her, most of the girls in JHS and SHS returned to school pregnant, with some donning engagement rings. A report cited on Starfm.com uncovered the alarming increase of teenage pregnancy among students in the Eastern Region. According to Mrs Cythia Anim, “Some female students returned to school pregnant and wearing engagement rings. They got impregnated and were forced into marriage. But the policy says you cannot sack them from the school. So I allowed them to stay in school. I only asked them to remove the rings. In all this, it will get to a stage they will drop out of school when the belly protrudes”. She disclosed this at the Girls Education Network formed by the Plan International Ghana meeting. The conference was part of the commemoration of the Day of the African Child on June 16 of every year. Mrs Anim also blamed the situation on the law, which permits girls to legally have sex at a young age. She said that the consensual age has exposed these young girls to the cunning ways of amoral men. She said, “Government is saying that a person can go to bed with whoever he chooses at age 16. So if a girl doesn’t start KG early by 16, she is in school and legally free to have sex and at age 18 can even go ahead and marry.” “So, we have realized that our girls are getting pregnant. And they even go and marry and come back to school with their rings on, which is of very bad taste. Because we know at the basic level, a girl should not be pregnant and marry. If for anything at all it should be tertiary, but with this clause, where lies the power of school authorities to question girls who come to school with their wedding and engagement rings?” she continued. Eastern Region recorded the second-highest numbers in teenage pregnancy. A total of 109,888 adolescent girls were impregnated in 2020 in Ghana. Of which 2,865 were between 10 and 14 years. And 107,023 were between the ages of 15 years to 19 years. Source: www.GhanaCNN.com
