"Abstract"
"University student housing has been an integral part of the higher learning institutions since"
"their inception. The services accorded to the students in the accommodation facilities have been changing over time in order conform to the diverse needs and preferences of the students which are always evolving."
"Many of the accommodation facilities in the public universities in particular the University of"
"Nairobi were built in the 1960’s and 70’s in order to meet the needs of the students back then The same housing facilities are currently in use despite the increase in population and changes in student preferences over time leading to congestion and inadequate facilities."

Most of the students also prepare meals in their rooms illegally which incur high electricity bills as well as posing dangers to the students due to the risks of fire breakouts. It is against this background that the researcher sought to study the trends; both local and international, of the accommodation facilities in order to identify them and decipher their implications on student life. This will form a basis of identifying the contemporary trends that need to be addressed in the design of student hostels. A review of the design manuals by the commission of higher education and the off campus code of practise and ascertaining the"
"conformity of the standards by the accommodation facilities will be studied."
