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 500 residential places at UTech, 271 for female students and 229 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 Management Committee headed by a Resident Assistant.

The Accommodation Officer has the overall administrative responsibility for the Halls of Residence.
