Services

Housing services

The 13 UPD residence halls play an important role in the total development of students. These residence halls provide an atmosphere conducive to sound intellectual, physical, emotional, spiritual, social and cultural pursuits. They are living laboratories on campus where students are able to integrate the interplay between academic and non-academic learning experiences. No other system of the University has the potential to impact the passing student more than his/her place of residence.

Tough love
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

Studying in UP has exposed me to systemic problems in scientific research. It can be discouraging, but it has also strengthened my resolve to work towards changing the system for the better.
