At CKT-UTAS, we understand the importance of a supportive and nurturing living environment for your academic success. We offer a range of student accommodation options that prioritize both comfort and safety.
On-Campus Halls of Residence
Our university provides two dedicated halls of residence to meet the accommodation needs of our students.
We have a female hall(Navoro Hall) and a male hall(Ecowas Hall), offering a safe and inclusive living space.
As a new student, you will be automatically assigned to one of these halls based on availability, ensuring a smooth transition and a supportive community of peers.
For students who are not assigned to on-campus halls or prefer alternative living arrangements, we assist in finding suitable off-campus accommodation options.
Our accommodation office can provide resources and guidance to help you explore rental opportunities in the surrounding areas.
Whether it’s private apartments, shared houses, or other rental options, we are here to support you in finding a comfortable and convenient place to live.
When considering off-campus accommodation, it’s important to take certain measures to ensure your safety and security.
Here are some guidelines to keep in mind:
Research and Visit:
Before finalizing any rental agreement, thoroughly research the neighbourhood, property, and landlord.
It’s advisable to visit the property in person to assess its condition, safety features, proximity to campus and essential amenities.
Read the Lease Agreement:
Carefully review the lease agreement and understand its terms and conditions. Pay attention to rent payments, utilities, maintenance responsibilities, and any additional fees or regulations.
Talk to fellow students, university staff, or local residents for recommendations or insights about reputable landlords and safe residential areas.
Check Safety Measures:
Ensure that the property has appropriate safety measures in place, such as secure locks, fire safety equipment, and functional smoke detectors.
Additionally, consider the availability of emergency contact information and procedures provided by the landlord or property management.
If you are sharing accommodation with roommates, establish clear communication and understand each other’s expectations to maintain a harmonious living environment.
Safety and Security
Both on-campus and off-campus, your safety and security are of utmost importance.
Here are some general safety tips:
Save important contact numbers, including campus security, local authorities, and emergency services, in your phone and keep them easily accessible.
Secure Your Living Space:
Always lock your doors and windows when you leave your accommodation, even for short periods. Don’t share your keys or access codes with unauthorized individuals.
When walking alone, especially at night, use well-lit pathways and be aware of your surroundings. Consider travelling with a friend or using reliable transportation options.
Report Safety Concerns:
If you notice any safety hazards or security issues in your accommodation or the surrounding area, report them promptly to the appropriate authorities or your landlord.
