The University provides separate hostels for our female students, both on-campus and in the immediate vicinity of the University. All of our hostels are fully supervised and come with round-the-clock security. Some single occupancy rooms are available, although most of our students opt for the double or triple occupancy rooms. All of the hostels have a main kitchen, TV rooms, sports and recreation areas and free Wi-fi. In the main, on-campus hostel, a mini-market sells a range of basic items. A nurse is available, throughout the night and is supported by the University clinic, which is staffed by a doctor and an attending nurse. For hostel students, the University’s ambulance service is on call, 24 hours a day, throughout the year. Whenever a student might need the ambulance service, his or her status is always followed up and monitored by Student Services. Further information on medical support is given below.

The Student Services Housing Section can advise students on all aspects of hostel life and, of course, on the transport services available. Buses can be booked by students who would like to go shopping in one of Sohar’s many malls or to go on almost any kind of organized trip.

Accommodation at a University hostel can be booked via Sohar University’s handy mobile application.
