University Of Mines And Technology 2018 / 2019 Accommodation

There are two halls of residence in the University. The halls are the Chamber of Mines and Gold Refinery. A third hall is currently under construction and would be ready for occupation in August 2014.  All the Halls of residence accommodate both male and female students. The University is unable to guarantee all students accommodation (especially continuing students). Most students are, therefore, living in private sector housing (hostels), most of which are located outside the University Campus. A majority of these hostels are however, within walking distances to the University Campus.
There are a number of private hostel accommodations for UMaT students to consider in Tarkwa.  These range from hostels with shared kitchen and bathroom facilities to flats, those with the study bedrooms having their own private bathrooms and small kitchenettes. Some of the hostels even have air conditioners and internet connectivity in the study bedrooms.
All of them are self-catering. Tarkwa, a vibrant municipality with a history of gold mining spanning a century, is a fantastic city to live in and study mining and allied engineering courses.  However, private hostel accommodation is slightly higher in terms of cost as compared to University accommodation. Detailed information on private hostels, their locations, facilities and services, as well as rent, are available at the Academic and Students Affairs Unit.
Accommodation for International Students 
As part of the measures to improve the security of our Students, particularly International Students and to ensure the provision of an enabling residential facility and environment for their studies and stay, it is the policy of the University that, all International Students are to be accommodated on Campus in University’s Halls of Residence.
How are residential facilities administered?
A Hall Council consisting of Senior and Junior members administers each Hall. The Senior Hall Tutor is the Executive Head of the Hall. He is assisted by Hall Bursar and other supporting staff. The Hall authorities determine the number of students in a room. The Hall authorities of the various Halls work with the Dean of students to formulate common policies for all the Halls.
