  • Accommodation is charged on a weekly basis if required during orientation or vacation periods. The majority of residents vacate and return home during vacation periods.

Resident Student Club (RSC) fees

Each semester every resident is required to pay a Resident Student Club fee to the Resident Student Club of each college, who expend the funds for the benefit of residents.
