The Student Residence Office provides on-campus accommodation for almost 3,700 students. Most of the residence halls cluster at Cornwall Street, forming a complex of student dormitories about 10 minutes away from main campus on foot. Students should contact the Student Residence Office and apply for housing by the posted deadlines due to very limited residence places and increasing demand.
