Student Housing & Accommodation

Student Housing strives to create a welcoming, comfortable, secure and hygienic clean living environment. This is conducive to learning, developing responsible citizenship and supporting the personal, social and academic development of our students.

The Nelson Mandela University provides different types of residences for students at different stages of their development. Residences are located on the Summerstrand North, South, Second Avenue and George Campus. In addition three senior undergraduate residences and Post Graduate Student Village (PGSV) on the Summerstrand Campus exist.

Accommodation is limited thus necessitating the application of entrance criteria, such as:

  • Academic performance;
  • Account in good standing;
  • Disciplinary Record;

In order to accommodate the overflow, the Mandela University has accredited a number of off campus establishments which conform to our stringent accommodation and minimum requirements. Transport is provided from these establishments to the various campuses on a regular daily basis.

In addition to the above, a significant amount of smaller accredited accommodations exist. Transport is not provided but these establishments are often within walking distance of certain campuses.

Our campus in George provides significant accommodation for under and postgraduate students located in an idyllic setting.
