Change the world

Office for International Education

International Students have the choice of either staying on campus or off campus. The number of on campus residences is limited and preference is given to South African Students. It is thus advisable that you secure your accommodation arrangements before leaving your home country. The Off Campus Housing Office will assist you in obtaining accommodation, provided you have paid and applied within the given timeframes. If a student does not want the accommodation sourced by the Office, they will be referred to a hotel, guest house or backpacker’s at the student’s own cost. The Office for International Education offers a comprehensive support network and students and visitors can feel confident that they will be made welcome and looked after during their stay.

Application procedure

There is limited accommodation available whether on or off campus and it is allocated on a first- come first- serve basis. The following procedure is set for application:

  • Download and/or complete the posted accommodation application forms and return via fax or post to the Office for International Education. (Please note that the accommodation application form will only be forwarded with your acceptance letter)
  • Ensure immediate payment of your R2000.00 accommodation deposit as stated on the application form to avoid disappointment.
  • Applications should reach the Office no later than the second Friday in May (for second semester intake) and no later than the 19th November (for following year intake).
  • Deposits are to be settled within two weeks of application.
  • There will be no guarantee of placement for late applications.
  • All residence fees are payable in advance per semester

Should you wish to source your own accommodation, kindly notify the Office of your intended address prior to arrival (degree seeking students only). Please note that study abroad and exchange students are to stay in accredited accommodation only. Information on non-accredited accommodation may be forwarded to the Off Campus Housing Office for purposes of accreditation. This may take several months and is not guaranteed. Contact the study abroad office if you require more information on this.
