CPUT Residence Department: What we’re all about

They aim to accommodate at least 13,000 students each night in comfortable and affordable CPUT dormitories throughout their college years. After all, the students need a comfortable place to rest after a busy day. As part of the almost universal atmosphere in all the dormitories, they strive for better standards, comfort, and safety for the convenience of our students. To create a comfortable and homely environment for our students, they offer both single rooms and shared rooms with shared facilities.

CPUT dormitories are open to both local and international students. Residence life is a holistic experience of being part of a diverse and exciting community. Some students meet fellow classmates and form close friendships that will last a lifetime.

Additionally, you’ll have access to a variety of learning and personal development opportunities, guaranteeing that when you graduate, you’ll not only have the academic credentials you need but also the necessary soft skills to succeed in the outside world. There are three basic categories into which they can divide the learning experiences they offer in residences:

  • academic support
  • social development
  • health and wellness

Residence life

The housing at CPUT offers a thriving academic community, a varied social and cultural experience, and an inclusive way of life. Students from diverse backgrounds come together in the residence halls. You’ll understand that your housemate or roommate could be a future business leader from Nigeria, Namibia, Zimbabwe, or everywhere in between. They could also be an engineering student from Mpumalanga. The CPUT homes are more than just places to live; they are also learning communities that offer academic support through on-site tutors and mentors who have been assigned.


The access control technology is installed in every home, and security personnel is stationed at each entry. Students are urged to take security seriously, for example, by taking responsibility for the behavior of their visitors and encouraging roommates to make the necessary arrangements in accordance with the norms and regulations of the residence.

Please ask if you do not see it. It’s easy; if you require any assistance throughout your stay, we are here to ensure that you have a positive academic experience at CPUT.


CPUT residences are self-catering residences and are equipped with kitchens for the students to cook their meals. The list of equipment includes a stove, refrigerator/ freezer, and washing sink. Students are expected to bring their crockery and cutlery.

CPUT Residence Applications

Application process

Student Life and Housing Services will introduce an online residence application for current residents and students applying for housing for the first time. All applicants/students can apply for a stay.

PLEASE NOTE: Even if you are academically accepted into a program, applying for residence does not guarantee placement in residence due to the limited number of available housing places. Students who wish to apply for private accommodation can contact our Residence Business unit at Residenceb@cput.ac.za for assistance

For students who are applying to CPUT for the first time or who have never applied before, your housing application will only be processed after your online academic application has been submitted. Just log in to your SOS IEnabler as an existing CPUT continuing student to continue with your residence application.

Choosing the right accommodation is very important for a successful university life. CPUT Residence offers the ideal solution for students at Cape Peninsula Institute of Technology. CPUT Residences offer a great home away from home with a strategic location, extensive amenities, a focus on security and comfort, and affordability. By choosing a CPUT residence, students can fully immerse themselves in their university experience, develop lifelong friendships and get the most out of their studies.
