Off-campus Accommodation

You are free to arrange your own off-campus accommodation but we strongly advise against signing lease agreements prior to your arrival in South Africa. You should always physically inspect rental properties before signing a lease.

We are happy to suggest some preferred off-campus accommodation providers offering a wide variety of quality off-campus accommodation options to suit different requirements and budgets. Most of these options are located within a 10 kilometre radius from campus. Our MSA shuttle bus service also provides transport on selected routes to some of them, while other accommodation options provide their own transport to campus.

We recommend you familiarise yourself with the Rental Housing Act, Consumer Affairs South Africaand Landlord and Tenants Rights before you sign your lease agreement.

Please contact the Residence staff team for a list of preferred off-campus accommodation providers.
