College’s residential experience is a unique and defining feature of University life. Our hostel features more than simply the hostel itself: it includes own dining, recreational, fitness and music facilities, plus dedicated groups of wardens, tutors, hostel staff and executives of WSSU Residential Students’ Association, who work hard to care for each individual student in the College family. Living on-campus – living where you study, studying where you live – offers a fundamentally distinct way to engage College life. You have a greater number of opportunities to deepen your ties to both the College and the University at large by building deep, long-lasting relationships that will last for decades.
In LWS hostel, we believe students could learn more than just the way they live with students of their age coming from different countries, different background and different faculties – we hope our students could learn mutual respect to each other and learn from each other – so as to build a harmonious community. That could benefit individual by providing an opportunity for them to develop into a better person with good communication skills and empathy to others, so as to accommodate the needs of others, and of course the hostel community as a whole by modelling a “home-away-from-home” for all students.
Learning does not only mean acquiring knowledge from textbooks. Students can learn from peers, no matter from junior or senior students, for knowledge and life experience via daily life and hostel activities – having a night chat, reading club, interest groups, etc.. Our wardens and hostel tutors are always there to provide guidance of living and personal development. Indeed they are good mentors, no matter for formal and informal advice.
