UNZA allocates private apartments at Marshlands village to International Students on short-term exchange programmes. Exchange students are accommodated in shared rooms, which are self-contained. The distance from Marshlands Village to the main campus is approximately 500m, or 5-minute walk. 

Exchange Students who wish to find their own source or other alternatives for accommodation during their study at the University of Zambia are free to do so. Nevertheless, this might be subject to inspection by relevant University of Zambia authorities so as to ensure that appropriate standards are adhered to.
