If you’re in your last year of high school and are planning to complete a degree at the University of Johannesburg (UJ)next year, then you need to start your accommodation search now. But why so soon?

With the demand for student housing exceeding the supply of on-campus accommodation, the search for accommodation in Johannesburg can be frustrating.

But why struggle and stress when you can secure the best student accommodation in Johannesburg at Varsity Lodge?
