At present PU has 28 hostels, 17 for male and 11 for female students. Most of these students are accommodated in the hostels at the Quaid-e-Azam Campus. Total number of hostel residents is 6961.
To meet the growing need of accommodation for female students another girls hostel is under construction . Each hostel is looked after by a Warden and a Superintendent, who are generally members of the academic faculty. Management of the hostels is coordinated by the Chairman Hall Council, who is a senior faculty member.
On-campus housing facilities include 89 houses for teachers and University officers and 249 houses for junior staff of the University. About forty houses and eighty single accommodations are available in the various student hostels that are occupied by Wardens, Superintendents and Assistant Superintendents. The University plans to build more houses for the academic faculty and other employees. Three bachelor teacher's hostels provide accommodation to the younger members of the academic staff. A guesthouse within the Residential Colony and the guestrooms in the Student-Teacher Center provide accommodation to the academics visiting the University.
