All full-time students of the University are assigned to Halls of Residence. When applying for admission, students must indicatetheir Hall preference. Assignment to a Hall does not mean that a student is offered residence. Only full-time students of the University are eligible to apply for accommodation on Campus and only a small percentage of those applying can be housed, as space is limited. Off-Campus accommodation can also be arranged.
There are six Halls of Residence on the Mona Campus:
- Aston Preston Hall - male and female occupants
- Chancellor Hall - male only
- Irvine Hall - male and female occupants
- Mary Seacole Hall - female only
- Rex Nettleford Hall - male and female occupants
- Taylor Hall - male and female occupants
Each Hall of Residence is provided with a laundry area which is equipped with coin-operated washers and dryers, as well as a lunch room or kitchen. A Resident Advisor whose duty is to provide assistance to residents, is assigned to each Hall.
Conditions for Residing on Hall
Hall fees are payable in full at the beginning of the semester (unless other arrangements have been made with the Bursary) and become due from the time of occupancy. Therefore, persons taking up permanent or temporary residence before the start of term must pay for the additional period of residence.
There are Regulations governing occupancy on Hall which are given to all residents on entry to the Hall. Failure to adhere to such regulations may result in your removal from the Hall. During vacation periods, students who wish to remain in residence maydo so only with the permission of the Student Services Manager and will be required to pay for such accommodation in advance.
Students who opt to reside off-campus should make contact with the Lodgings Officer (876-702-3493), who will assist you in locating suitable accommodation near the Campus. The office will also provide information on prices of various types of residence. For more information please visit the Office of Student Services and development website.
