Residence facilities are provided in 15 main residence buildings, which house approximately 2,780 single men and women. Of this number 2,665 beds are reserved for incoming undergraduate first-year students.

The residence communities are managed by a staff including residence life area co-ordinators and dons (i.e., residence assistants).
