International Students’ Hostel
The International Students’ Hostel I and II are located in the southern part of the campus, off the road leading to the Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research. These hostels were purposely built to cater for the increasing numbers of international students at the University. To ensure that our international students have as much contact with their Ghanaian peers as possible and to foster close socio-cultural interaction with our international students, a number of Ghanaian students are resident in the hostels as peer partners.
Each room in the hostel is furnished with a bed, a locker, a sofa, a reading table and chair for each occupant. All rooms have a balcony and each room is big enough to ensure privacy even though some of the rooms are shared.
Each hostel (ISH I and II) comprises 4 floors with a total of 128 rooms of single and double occupancy.
Due to the limited number of single rooms, the management of the hostel cannot satisfy all requests for single rooms. However, efforts are made to satisfy students with special and urgent needs. Students are advised to bring along or acquire on arrival basic toiletries and other basic essentials to outfit their rooms.
