Been accepted to TUKS, but do not have any accommodation lined up? As the de facto capital city of South Africa, home to grand homes, trendy eateries, boutiques, and a bustling nightlife, Pretoria is so much more than just the “Jacaranda City”. It is also home to some of the best educational institutions in South Africa, such as the University of Pretoria, the Tshwane University of Technology, and the CSIR, which is one of the leading scientific and technology research and development organisations on the continent.
Choosing the perfect accommodation can excite, as it provides many opportunities to make new friends with people from different backgrounds, but it can also be scary. As a parent or learner, you want accommodation that is safe, clean, well-maintained, within walking distance from campus, and close to all the trendy hotspots, which is ideal for socialising or working part-time.
We Manage Several Properties Throughout Pretoria
With so many students flocking to Pretoria’s top institutions, residence placement is never guaranteed, as the demand, by far, exceeds availability. While a shortage of accommodation already exists throughout the suburbs of Pretoria and Johannesburg, rentals have gone through the roof, forcing many students to seek shelter in unwelcoming areas far from campuses. But this is where Varsity Lodge can help.
At Varsity Lodge, we believe that finding a safe and decent place to stay without breaking the bank can be just as important as earning a degree. As specialists in the provision of student accommodation across Gauteng, we own and manage several accommodation properties throughout Pretoria. Offering prime locations with 24-hour security, fingerprint access, and CCTV cameras at each site, students can make their choice from the Riviera Varsity Lodge, the Riviera Med Varsity Lodge, the Tshwane Varsity Lodge, the Tshwane Phase II Varsity Lodge, TUKS Varsity Lodge, and Lynwood Varsity Lodge.
Close to Restaurants, Cafés, and Nightlife
Famed for its laid-back ambience, tree-lined streets, and beautiful homes, Lynwood is a pretty, leafy suburb that is close to the University of Pretoria, UNISA, CSIR, and Tshwane University of Technology. The Lynnwood location is close to a tennis club, squash club, yoga studio, and restaurants, malls, trendy cafés, and nightlife. Lynwood is the perfect zone for student accommodation.
Semi-Furnished Units Designed to The Highest Standards
Providing learners with a home-away-from-home lifestyle in a safe environment that is highly conducive to study and making lifelong friendships, Lynwood provides students with more than just space to sleep. Situated opposite the University of Pretoria’s main campus on Lynnwood Road, the Lynnwood location offers 92 semi-furnished units consisting of separate bedrooms, as well as communal furnished kitchens, dining rooms, and lounges equipped with plush couches and plasma screens. Designed to the highest standards, each unit has between five and seven bedrooms with shared bathrooms. But if you apply early, you can book a double room with a shared bathroom or a single room with an en-suite bathroom.
At Varsity Lodge, we understand that finances, safety, and happiness are important factors for choosing accommodation, especially for those who are living away from home for the first time. Our accommodation in Lynnwood is not only affordable and safe, but it provides the ideal environment for students who are serious about their studies.
