Housing services

There is on campus accommodation at both the new and old campuses. On the new campus there are Ajarn’s (teacher’s) apartments as well as student accommodation. You can find apartments available either on the old or new campuses or off campus with many locations available all of the way between downtown and the new campus.

Availability of accommodation fluctuates with session times.  A large percentage of MSU students come from other provinces, living ‘away from home’, so there is a big demand for on campus accommodation.

However, there is a large amount of accommodation available nearby and more is being built continuously to cater for the increasing number of students.
