There are currently ten halls of residence at the University of the West Indies, Mona: 

Offer of Accommodation

Upon application to study at the UWI Mona, each student is automatically assigned a hall attachment; however note that attachment to a hall of residence does not mean that you have been assigned a room in the hall of residence. You are to complete an application for housing and submit it to the Housing Unit for processing ( ). Once your application has been approved you will be sent an offer of accommodation. This offer of accommodation should be accompanied by a letter which will give details such as the date you are expected to take up residence and the related hall fees.

Remember that you have to confirm that you were offered a place in hall before you pack up and move to campus. You may be accepted to live in either a single or a double room, depending on the hall to which you applied.

The hall will send you a list of things you need to take with you.  Please pay attention to this list and be guided by it. You may also wish to take family pictures, curtains, towels, and sheets. Have fun decorating your room to make it comfortable, as this will be your home for the next year.
