How To Apply TUT Accommodation For First-Year Students

  • First-year students should indicate on the official TUT admission application form whether or not they want to apply for residence accommodation.
  • These students will be selected based on their unconditional acceptance for enrolment in a full-time academic qualification offered at TUT.
  • If there are too many first-year students qualifying for a residence, further selection will be based on the date of unconditional acceptance by the faculty.


TUT Application for Residence Accommodation For Returning Students

Returning senior students must apply for residence accommodation for the following year before the end of October, using the online application process. Students can log in to their Student iEnabler accounts and select/click on Residence Application. They can also directly visit the link:  Returning students who do not follow this procedure will not be assured of a residence space the following year. These students will be selected based on the criteria as stated in the placement policy. The main requirements are the following:

  • The student should have obtained a minimum academic average of 50% (55% in the case of senior residences) for the full academic year or must have passed all semester and year courses;
  • The student should not exceed the maximum number of years allowed to reside in any TUT residence. The maximum number of years is the minimum number of academic years required by TUT to complete a qualification successfully plus one additional year;
  • The student must be registered for a minimum of two subjects. (Subjects registered for non-degree purposes will not be taken into account.);
  • have settled all outstanding fees or made arrangements with TUT Student Finance;
All other students who want to apply for residence accommodation should apply online at the beginning of the year that they require the accommodation for, after their academic registration. These applications will only be considered after returning senior students and first-year students have been registered and these students will be selected according to the same criteria that apply to returning students and on a first-come-first-served basis.​
