Varsity Lodge: The Answer to Scarce Wits Student Accommodation

Johannesburg and Pretoria are two of the most popular places to study in the country. This is largely the result of the number of prestigious academic institutions in these two cities. One of the most prominent universities is the University of the Witwatersrand, which is otherwise known as Wits. This university is the alma mater to many well-known figures in South Africa and the world, who have graduated from this university. The campus is beautiful and well-maintained, and students from all over the world go to Johannesburg every year to study at Wits.

One of the drawbacks of studying in such a popular student area is the lack of student accommodation. It can be virtually impossible to find Wits student accommodation that is affordable, comfortable, and safe, and often students are left to find accommodation far away from campus, which makes it very difficult for them to attend lectures and practical studies on campus at different times. The ideal situation is to get a placement in one of the student residences around the university, but these are usually booked up way in advance, and long waiting lists make it difficult to get a date on when a student will be admitted.

This often means that students have to opt for alternative accommodation options that don’t suit their budgets or their lifestyles, and sometimes the living arrangements conspire against what they are there to do – to study and to advance themselves with professional qualifications. Living in a situation that is not conducive to effective study means that the student cannot fully take advantage of the study opportunities (and large fees!) that they are there for, and it is essential that students are able to live and study effectively within a disciplined environment that does not limit their social growth.
