Registration for membership of a Town Residence

Secure your space for 2018!

What is membership of a Town Residence?

Membership of a Town Residence does NOT mean that physical accommodation is provided to students. This only means that students who register as members of a Town Residence can form part of the organized student life on campus under the guidance of a House Parent and a House Committee. There are, however, some Town Residences, that will help students from 2018 to procure accommodation in specific Residential Complexes off campus. ACCOMMODATION AT THESE TOWN RESIDENCES IS SUBJECT TO REGISTRATION AS MEMBER OF THE SPECIFIC TOWN RESIDENCE. Thus, students must first register as members on this registration sheet and then apply for residence. For more information on this, the following links can be followed:

A Town Residence functions similarly to campus residences to the extent that students can participate in the full student life, such as sports, culture, community service, current affairs, academic support, etc. Although students have their own accommodation in town, Town Residences have offices and clubhouses on campus where students meet. Town Residences are divided into three ladies and three men’s residences.
