We welcome students to our residential facilities. Our dormitories, (two on-campus halls of residence), are modest student accommodation (available to full time female students only) housing up to forty-nine (49) persons. These are offered firstly to international and regional students and students residing in Tobago. The facility is then offered to persons residing in the furthest locations in Trinidad. Accommodation is offered in single, double, triple and quadruple room configurations at varying rates and can be requested from the Student Services Department.
Students who reside on the dorms are required to perform chores that assist with the upkeep of the residence. They are also required to adhere to the rules and regulations as laid out in the Accommodations handbook provided to them when they move into the dorms. The House Mother and Student Services Manager oversee the adherence to these rules and regulations.
Applying for Housing
After application to the Institute, students are required to go through the interview process, during which those requiring accommodation should complete the ‘Request for On-Campus Accommodation' form which is to be submitted to the Student Services Department. Applicants from outside Trinidad and the furthest parts of Trinidad are given first preference for accommodation (based on priority). Students who have been accepted for On-Campus accommodations are notified approximately 2 weeks prior to the start of the new academic year.
Should there be space available after the acceptance of the priority students, consideration is given to other applicants, again based on distance from the Institute and also, the date of application.
