Welcome to VinUniversity residence. We understand that moving out of home and moving into a university residence is an exciting time with a lot for you to learn about. At VinUniversity, you will find that living on campus is an integral part of your first-year experience. We hope that you will develop a sense of respect and care for others; make responsible choices about your lifestyle; share your academic, social, and cultural experiences with other residents; and learn to live independently yet in harmony with a diverse group of people. We encourage you to actively engage in your community according to your rights and responsibilities as a resident on VinUniversity campus. Since we study, work, and live together here, we also encourage you to adapt the atmosphere of:
Openness: Stay open-minded to racial, cultural, gender and religious diversity and sexual orientation.
Sharing and Respecting: Treat people, properties, and the environment with care and respect.
Healthy Lifestyle: Eat healthily, exercise daily, live happily, and be nice to each other.
We sincerely wish you an unforgettably positive experience as a VinUniversity resident! To help you to prepare for and benefit from your university life, please take a look at this guide.

Whether you are a domestic or an international student, studying at VinUniversity will be a unique and life-changing experience. VinUniversity aims to provide students with a wide variety of opportunities to explore and embrace differences both within their own culture and cultures which they may not be familiar with. Apart from joining different student clubs, you can also join VISA (VinUniversity International Student Association) which is established to bring together the diverse international community at the university, and to support international causes/events on and off campus.
Here at VinUniversity, we value and celebrate diversity so that you can be yourself and enjoy learning from others. We respect that all our students are culturally unique. Some students will need their own private space in order to practice religious rituals; as such, prayer rooms are set up in specially designated areas on campus.
Education at VinUniversity emphasizes the importance of learning for public service and the public good. Community-Based Learning (CBL) allows you and community organizations to work together to meet both their needs and your academic requirements. Not-for-profit and government organizations identify projects of research, analysis, or evaluation that would be helpful to them, their beneficiaries, or the wider community. These projects are then matched to courses at VinUniversity.
Also, there are plenty of volunteer opportunities on campus and in Hanoi that will allow you to connect with the surrounding community and make an impact during your time. By participating in these projects, you can develop leadership skills, integrate theory and practice, gain employable skills, and enrich your life as a valuable citizen.
VinUni Dorm is located at Vinhomes Ocean Park, Gia Lam, Hanoi.
In a first-of-a-kind university experience in Vietnam and following the common practice in the world’s best universities, all first-year students are required to live in VinUni dormitories, truly co-living, co-working, and co-learning. We strongly believe that living together allows students to make social connections, study and learn together, and build lasting bonds that will be beneficial throughout their lives.
Support in the residence halls will be provided by Residential Life staff, a Faculty-in-Residence Program, and a Resident Assistant Program.
