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.
The Student Council (SC) serves as the voice of the students, with the responsibility for overseeing student organizations and acting as a means for students to govern their non-academic lives. SC is a group of elected and volunteer students working together with an adult advisor within the framework of a constitution or bylaws to provide a means for student expression and assistance in school affairs and activities, give opportunities for student experience in leadership, and encourage student/faculty/community relations. SC includes a president, vice president, secretary, and members.
Participation in SC should be more than creating memories that connect you to VinUniversity, it is an opportunity for you to apply academic knowledge to practical circumstances, hone your skillsets, and expand your network.
VinUni has various student-run clubs and societies, including, cultural groups, performing groups, spiritual groups, sport and game clubs, student leadership and activism groups, student publications, etc. Joining student clubs or societies is a great way to sharpen your brain, learn new things, practice your leadership skills, and make friends who share your interests. As you are the first cohort of VinUniversity, create your legacy by forming a club or a student society today.
Whether you are a Vietnamese or an international student, studying at VinUniversity will be a unique and life-changing experience, opening a whole new world to you. VinUniversity aims to provide students with a wide variety of opportunities to explore and embrace differences both within their own culture and cultures with which they may not be familiar. As a member of the VinUniversity community, you can also join different student clubs to partake in organizing such events as international cultural festivals.
Here at VinUniversity, we value diversity so that you can be yourself and enjoy learning from the diversity of others. We respect that all our students are unique and that some will need their own private space in order to practice religious rituals; these students will be accommodated with prayer rooms in the dormitory areas.
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 will 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.
