Different types of accommodation

There are many different types of accommodation for students in Uganda. At RocApply we know that the accommodation is an essential component of an enjoyable study abroad. This is a good option for travellers and students who want freedom and independence.

The apartments in Uganda - with fully equipped kitchens and bathrooms - are typically furnished according to the Ugandan characteristics. You will have more independence and the opportunity to cook your own meals. Single or double rooms are usually offered in same apartments.

Cooking and chores is done by the students themselves. The apartments are generally without much supervision and are self-catering, but they are close to local amenities like cafes, bars, restaurants, shops and bus stops.

If you are looking for a more independent lifestyle during your study and meet and interact with other foreign students, student residences / houses options are ideal. A student residence can vary in size depending on location and availability too.

These residences usually accommodate students of all ages and nationalities in a house-type location. The student residences in Uganda usually offer shared kitchen facilities or cafeterias and give you the opportunity to practice your new language with fellow students even away from your classes. Normally there is a reception you can contact if you have any issues or questions.

If you would like to have a little more personal space where to stay, accommodation in a hotel could be the best choice for you. But this option is only suitable for short-time stays between 1 and 4   weeks. You could choose from various options, however all rooms have their own bathroom. For hotel bookings, please note that double rooms may only be booked by two scholars travelling together.

Here are our top tips:

  • Organise accommodations in advance. Universities here will be able to help foreign-exchange students find accommodation before study abroad begins, ranging from home-stays with Ugandan families to single-person apartments. Speak to the study abroad representative at your school or university to see what information they can offer, wait, you can inquire right here for quick response on any query.
  • If you are planning to find a place when you arrive in Uganda, it is sensible to book a few nights at a hostel before you leave home to give you a base while hunting for longer-term accommodation. RocApply has all the information on hostels in almost every town in Uganda, along with photos, independent reviews and online booking.
