UJ Accommodation

UJ Accommodation

Student Accommodation & Residence Life division is mainly responsible for the accommodation of approximately 19000 students in both university owned and managed residences as well as off-campus accredited privately owned accommodation.

This is a vast division with 35 residences spread over 4 campuses at the University of Johannesburg. It should further be noted that, the total number of 35 residences are inclusive of the 7 Day Houses.

Off-campus accommodation’s accredited properties are within 2 km of each campus and   where they are beyond the prescribed radius, the set condition is that service providers are obliged to provide transport. Additionally, intercampus transportation is provided for all students residing in off-campus residences and houses. The university offers to all students, a list of accredited off-campus accommodation.

UJ Accommodation, ​If you have applied for campus accommodation and you have not yet received a confirmation of allocated accommodation, you may have to make alternative arrangements. The subdivision of Student Accommodation and Residence Life sends confirmation letters by October to all students who have applied and who have been accepted.

As an alternative to University accommodation it is suggested that you obtain private accommodation. It is important to note that the Division for Internationalisation does not accept responsibility for any possible problems arising from a student’s private accommodation.

The Division is able to help identify University approved private accommodation.
