The Administrative Committee was aware of the situation and then arranged the conversion of the dormitories from 1 June 2003 to accommodate 388 male and 944 female residents or totally 1,332 residents.
In the past 2005, the Administrative Committee realized that it was important and necessary to develop and strengthen the administrative system of the Residence Hall to be the same standard as other dormitories in the South East Asia; therefore, all staff from every department cooperated to have brainstorming about preparing strategic plans for the Residence Hall to establish vision, plans and projects/activities for practice in order to enhance efficiency of the operation during the year of 2006-2010.
In 2006, the brainstorming was set up to develop the Residence Hall by adapting the visions to be in line with the administration, preparing development plans and administrative directions, and improving operation and management of the Residence Hall for the academic year of 2007-2009.
Since June 2007, the Residence Hall has extended its services to the staff/operating officers and students studying at Bangkhuntien Campus.
