Mulungushi University Student Housing

2011 - 2012

Mulungushi, Zambia


The need to accommodate 10,000 students on campus, adjacent to the existing academic campus was an opportunity to investigate a mix of accommodation models, which address sustainability of students living together in groups of self catering units. This model of group dynamics is to ensure that self-management is inculcated in student “family “groups. The “Student Village” concept is being offered to the University as a Design / Build / Operate package, together with the commercial opportunities which enhances the viability of the development, but also provides a mix of uses within the “Village” concept.

The development is a phased over a time period, with a strategic number of units being provided to ensure that the infrastructure is matched to the take-up of the accommodation units.
