The Birth of Residential Halls
In the beginning, Chulalongkorn University was administered as a residential college, which means that students resided on the University campus during their academic pursuits. Residential halls for Chulalongkorn University students were established at the same time as the University. In their initial stage, these residential halls were located in the area known as “Windsor Palace”.
These residential halls were launched not only with the aim of serving as on campus living quarters for students so that they did not have to commute but also with the further aim of enabling them to learn how to cohabit in society and to instil in them a sense of morality and ethics so that they would be able to achieve the goal of being complete graduates.
