Program Housing

Students are typically accommodated in apartment style halls of residence typically shared by three to four students each with their own single room. Most residences are self-catered with kitchen facilities in which students can prepare their own meals. However, there are a few halls of residence which offer catering (providing some breakfast and evening meals for the students in a communal dining area). These are less common than the self-catering options and have higher fees due to the meals which are included.
