University of Pretoria Accommodation News On NSFAS Students
In todays latest NSFAS News– Following engagements between UP, accredited accommodation providers & the SRC today, Respublica has kindly agreed to make a concession & allow NSFAS students to stay at their residences without any financial obligation of more than R45 000.
This is an interim solution (until the end of March) to assist all parties to find a workable solution. Rentals at these residences will be temporarily revised to accommodate as many NSFAS students as possible.
Respublica has also agreed to provide a combination of bed options for NSFAS students at the residences that includes no top-ups, reduced top-ups & standard rates.
Another accredited accommodation provider, Apartments on William (AOW), has also decided to increase some of their room capacity per unit at the same room rate as prescribed by NSFASE & will, for example, turn a 4-bed room apartment into a 6-bed at R4 500 per month.
Students can contact these residences directly. Students who are eligible for accommodation who are facing immediate challenges in this regard can send an email to email@example.com to lodge requests for assistance.
