Student Accommodation

At student residences, we believe in family.

Our main objective is to provide a quality living and learning environment to our students and the stakeholders of the University. 

The Student Residence family assists you whenever you experience problems, no matter how big or small.

Your problem is our problem.

Over the years, our campus residences have accommodated a number of residential students who today are leaders in the industry, public and private sectors.

It is expected of residence students to use more than just a class/lecture room: numerous activities are available for our residence students to participate in. 

Our philosophy as the Student Residence Department is to “contribute to the holistic development of a student. 

Crime is very high in our society and the University is doing its best to protect residence students.

Resident students are urged to take care of themselves and make sure they walk in groups on and outside the campus.

People who choose WSU become part of the innovation generation – a generation that makes a difference, today and tomorrow.

The annual residence league of various sport codes, held during April/May, has proven to be very popular amongst our students.

Workshops arranged for the residence governance structures and general students focus on issues such as leadership, interpersonal skills, HIV/Aids, sexuality and pregnancy, diversity, housekeeping and study skills.

Due to the very high demand for student accommodation in residences, we are unable to offer all applicants accommodation in the residences.

Supplementary and aegrotat exams will not be considered for room allocations.

A student must be registered for a minimum of three courses. 

Residence allocation is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
