Is Hall Accommodation Compulsory For First First-Year Students?

Please take note of the following facts:

  • First, UCC affiliates s every student with a University Hall of Residence.
  • Second, you can choose to be in any private hostel accommodation despite your affiliation to a Hall of Residence.
  • Third, residing in a private hostel does not nullify your affiliation to your Hall of Residence.

Given this, you will realize that every student must be affiliated with a government hall, though it is not compulsory to reside in that Hall.

So which students qualify for Hall accommodation at UCC? Please find the answer to that question in the details below.


Which Students Reside In The Halls Of Residence On UCC Campuses?

Interestingly, the University has made the halls available for first-year students.

As a result, this saves fresh students from the inconvenience of searching for accommodation in an unfamiliar environment.

However, the University allocates the room on a first-come, first-served basis to fresh students.

Also, this does not prevent first-year students from renting private hostels of their choice.

Remember that the second, third and final year students are supposed to look for accommodation from private hostels in and around the University, 

However, there is an exception to this policy.

Interestingly, the following category of students may reside in the Hall for all four years:

  • Athletes and Sports students;
  • Hall Executives;
  • Students who perform essential activities for the Hall


UCC Hall Fees

So how much fee will students pay for hall accommodation at the University of Cape Coast?

Usually, students look for accommodations based on the pricing and facilities available. 

Most often, Halls of Residence are moderate in pricing compared to private hostels.

However, most private hostels around UCC have more comfortable and convenient facilities than halls.

At the University of Cape Coast, hall fees are not part of the admission fees. 

Since every fresh student doesn’t need to go to the University Hall for accommodation, the fees of students who accept the University Hall’s offer differ from those who go in for private hostels.

It means that the University separates the hall fees from the admission fees.

Currently, the University Of Cape Coast hall accommodation fees range from 800 to 1000 Ghana Cedis based on the number of occupants in a room.

Usually, the rooms in halls accommodate from two (2) to eight (8) persons in a room.
