Bedrooms are designed to accommodate two students but when possible students are allocated rooms of their own. All bedrooms have Wireless Internet connections. Dormitory students also enjoy a large study hall and computer room, co-ed lounge and recreation room. All students are responsible for keeping their own rooms and public areas tidy.
