National College of Education Student Residences

The student residence complex comprises 12 new buildings and 24 altered existing blocks housing 1000 students on the hilltop campus in Maseru. Construction was undertaken in two phases and completed in 2002. The new three storey blocks each accommodate 42 students in cllusters of 14. All study bedrooms face due north to benefit from the warmth of the winter sun. A simple language of green roofs and facebrick is carried through to the existing hostel buildings. A winding walkway connects the residences to the student and academic facilities.
