Are you seeking appropriate possibilities for accommodation for students if you intend to attend the University of Johannesburg? Look no further than the UJ Residences, on-campus accommodation options created to offer students a relaxing and encouraging living environment. You can learn about the various UJ Residences, the amenities provided, and the benefits of living on campus by reading this in-depth guide.

UJ Accommodation

You may need to make other arrangements if you have applied for campus housing but have not yet received confirmation of your space. All applicants and accepted students get confirmation letters from the Division of Student Accommodation and Residence Life by the end of October.

It is advised that you find private housing as an alternative to university housing. It is crucial to understand that the Division for Internationalization disclaims all liability for any issues that might arise from a student’s private housing. The Division can direct you to privately owned housing that has been approved by the university.
