Halls of Residence

RCSI Bahrain manages and operates a 20-apartment building as a Halls of Residence (HoR) for new-joining students. The building is less than five minutes' walk from the campus and is manned around the clock, by university-appointed security personnel.

The apartments are made up of two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large, shared, open-plan kitchen/dining/lounge area. Each unit is fully-furnished with a three-piece suite, a dining table and chairs, double beds, wardrobes, study desks and chairs, bedside lockers, a fridge-freezer, oven and hob unit, washing machine, microwave, kettle and television. 

Two tumble-dryers are also located within the building for shared use by all occupants.

A member of RCSI Bahrain staff is appointed as housemaster of the residence and takes some pastoral responsibility for students.

Rental periods are for ten months, with fees inclusive of wifi; electricity and water charges and weekly house-keeping. For the latest fees, reservations and further information, please contact the Student Services and Events department on or +973 16660200.


The Halls of Residence is situated within the ever-growing Busaiteen residential area, which is located adjacent to the campus and is where the vast majority of RCSI Bahrain's international students reside.

While many students have successfully arranged accommodation from abroad, others choose to wait until they have arrived in Bahrain and they have the opportunity to research and view the options available.

Please note that options are in plentiful supply and an extensive list of details and contacts for independently-operated residential blocks in the local area is available through the Student Services office.

Other Areas

Of course, there are many other residential areas around Bahrain that may be preferable or more suitable to students, depending on their budget and other circumstances.

Accommodation Sharing

Sharing accommodation can be a great way to meet fellow students, make new friends, develop support networks and save costs and is a preferred option for many of our students. The Student Services and Events team facilitates contact between potential housemates so please contact if you are interested.
