The Department of Financial Aid and Housing is responsible for all aspects of student housing on campus-room assignments, resident assistant selection and training, improvements to facilities, and social activities for dorm residents.
The dormitories of The College of The Bahamas are a short walk from the main campus. Because dorm space is limited at present, students from the Family Islands (out islands) of The Bahamas are given first preference. Residents live independently under the guidance of a resident dorm director, who works to maintain a safe and healthy environment for resident students.
Additionally, the Director of Financial Aid and Housing assists students in securing suitable, secure off-campus accommodations. Students are responsible for making final agreements with landlords.
For further information on housing contact the Director at 302-4370/1.
