MetadataShow full item record
This study investigated the socio-economic challenges arising from the acute shortage of accommodation at the University of Zambia. With analytical focus on un-accommodated students at the institution’s Great East Road Campus, the study employed a mixed method approach to illuminate the implications of inadequate lodging facilities at UNZA and the resultant effects of such shortages on the academic and social wellbeing of the students. Snapshots of these realities are presented here and recommendations for their amelioration are also proposed.
