The graduate residence buildings are all single occupancy. These residences are co-ed and feature comfortable, well-equipped lounges and laundry facilities. The bathrooms on each floor are dormitory style, with separate male and female facilities. Each lounge has a TV, sink, microwave, fridge, and hot plate. Although cooking is not permitted in the private rooms, there is an optional meal plan available at the RRU Cafeteria that does provide a balanced nutritious menu.
All rooms are equipped with a connection to the University LAN and to the Internet, and each floor has a computer lab (see Information Technology). Learners are encouraged to bring their own PCs.
Graduate residence costs vary according to the length of residency. Rates are subject to change.
