University Residence Muhammadiyah University of Yogyakarta (hereinafter abbreviated as Unires) is a dwelling or student dormitory of UMY. The existence of this Unires originated from the desire of Muhammadiyah University of Yogyakarta to have a representative student dormitory for student coaching. The aim is to provide students and students with a personal and Islamic guidance for UMY students. Apparently tit for tattoos, the wish received a response from the government program that provides grants Simple Housing Rental (RUSUNAWA) to private universities as a shelter for students.
