The major purpose of the Hostel and accommodation Section is to accommodate registered students of Kenya Coast National Polytechnic into available accommodation spaces.

Since there are limited accommodation spaces within the Polytechnic, booking of rooms is done on first come first-serve basis.

The hostels are structured for female students having basic and essential amenities.

The basic amenities ensure that students carry only personal bedding, clothing and toiletries. The hostels are managed by a skilled staff with years of experience and training who essentially take care of the student’s welfare and security in their Halls of Residence.

The hostels are available to students on a first come first served basis at a stipulated fee.
Although there are limited spaces within the Polytechnic premises, there are alternative hostels recommended by the Polytechnic within the neighborhood that are within walking distance, secure, have water, electricity and other basic amenities. The Polytechnic therefore recommends alternative accommodation to students who fail to get accommodation on campus.
