SQU offered different types of accommodations. There are distributed as follows:

  • Student Accommodation
    • Undergraduate Students

    • Postgraduate Students
    • Omani female postgraduate students can apply for on-campus residence in accordance 
      with the University Article (546/2009), where they are charged a small fee. However, providing on-campus residence for international female postgraduate students is still under discussion.
      Male postgraduate students are not offered on-campus residence. The Deanship of Student Affairs and the Housing Department can assist postgraduate students in finding a suitable accommodation close to the University. Rental payment is the responsibility of the student.
      Sultan Qaboos University has plans to rent a building close to campus for all postgraduate students for a small fee. Future plans also include constructing on-campus residence halls.
      There are several private property rental offices wherein you can lease a house from a landlord or a real estate agent. This can offer you an independent lifestyle and privacy. Properties available through the private rental market are generally unfurnished. Living with other people in a shared house is usually one of the more affordable options as many of the costs can be shared. Monthly rents vary according to the residence type and distance from the University. The closest residential place to SQU and where many students live is Al-Khoud, which is around 3km away from the University.
