Description of the Facilities
The Student Residence is a 3 story complex with the ability of offering comfortable accommodations to 32 single students – 16 males and 16 females. The female student residence is on the top floor while the male residence is located on the 1st floor. Though students are required to share a room with another person, each room is arranged and furnished in such a way that each person has their own privacy and furnishings which include a single bed, a desk, chair and bookshelf and a closet and dresser.
If fortunate enough students may be assigned a room which gives them a breathtaking view that stretches from the city of Kingston to the beautiful plains of St. Catherine. Each group of two rooms is separated by a spacious bathroom with shower, private toilet area, double sinks and lots of counter space.
The residence comes with all the basic amenities such as stove, fridge, microwave and television which are located in a common area on each floor. The laundry room which is on the ground floor is equipped with coin operated washing machines and other laundry facilities. Coins for the machines can be purchased at the Accounts Department on campus.
