The University of Ghana – UG Legon community, particularly students at the residential hall are to take note of the following regarding student residency in University-managed hall, as decided at the Residence Board meeting held on December 7, 2021;
University-Managed Halls: 2021/2022 Academic Year
- Students who were in residency in University-managed halls prior to the 2020/2021 academic year will continue to maintain residency until completion of their programmes of study.
- Students who were offered accommodation during the 2020/2021 academic year are to note that, as stated in their Residential Allocation letters, residency in the University-managed halls is for one academic year only, subject to re-application and balloting.
- As a result of the modular system introduced during the 2020/2021 academic year, to restrict the number of students on campus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many non-residential students were allocated accommodation in University-managed halls. With students returning as a single cohort in the 2021/2022 academic year, such students, who wish to have on-campus accommodation, will have to re-apply and ballot for beds.
- Students from the University of Ghana Medical and Dental Schools who were granted a special concession for residency, as a result of the structure of their academic calendar, will also be bound by the clauses above as applicable.
- Students should note that payment for Residential Facility User Fee (RFUF) should only be made after allocation of accommodation.
- Modalities for balloting for beds will be announced ahead of the start of the academic year.
Management of the University of Ghana – UG Legon wishes to assure the entire student body that efforts are being made to increase the stock of residential (hall) facilities available to students. Updates on this will be communicated soon.
