While the University of Ghana cannot guarantee residential facilities to all applicants, every effort will be made to assign students to facilities of their choice or suitable arrangements will be made to accommodate them in privately owned hostels.

In all cases, students admitted and assigned rooms must pay the relevant Residential Facility User Fee as part of the admission and registration processes. Students, who apply for residential facilities and are assigned rooms, are obliged to take up those rooms or forfeit their places at the University.
