Dansoman, near the coast 14km southwest of the city centre, is a large area with a predominantly middle/high-income population although some low-income people live here too.
Housing is a mix of detached and semi-detached houses and apartments on estates built from the early 1970s onwards. The area has basic services such as water and electricity but there are severe shortages and residents need tanks for water storage. There is the usual range of post offices, internet cafes, schools, shops, bookshops, banks and police stations. Telephone lines are installed on request.
The Methodist University College of Ghana, one of the newest private universities in the country, is to be found in Dansoman on the premises of the Wesley Grammar School. There are plenty of religious activities in this area and nightlife is lively. Trotros and taxis link this area to most parts of the city but traffic is heavy most of the time.
