Hall Culture Nkrumah Hall is a pure Pan Africanist like the name suggests. The Hall derives its values from those that Kwame Nkrumah fought for. Nkrumah Hall also uses OSAGEFO to mean Nkrumah. The Hall is also in solidarity with Mulago View Hostel and NKRUVIEW solidarity binds the two residences together. During annual culture week activities like Mega Benching and Bull roasting are aimed at strengthening the solidarity. During every first semester, there is always a culture week in which freshers are officially welcomed into the Osagyefo culture
Nkrumah hall has a unique culture from the rest of the halls. Its culture is highly organised and very peaceful in nature. Every year, the students organise a Porridge night in which students shed off stress till late.
