Halls of Residence

Welcome to the University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech, Ja.), and its Halls of Residence.

The objective of the Halls of Residence is to establish and maintain a holistic environment for living, learning and development that contributes to students' self-actualization and their ability to make a positive impact on the wider community.

There are 476 residential places at UTech, Jamaica, 266 for female students and 210 for male students. These residential places are provided through seven halls: Dennis Johnson, Farquharson, Garvey, and Halls, 'A', 'B', 'E' and 'F' which make up "The Lome Halls". A Resident Manager, who is a member of the University staff, manages each hall, along with a Student Executive Committee headed by a Resident Assistant.
