Students staying in any of the Nelson Mandela University residences are liable for a residence registration fee of R500.  The fee is debited to the student’s account and is payable every year. 

The payment date for residence registration fees is 30 April and 30 September for new second semester intakes.

Residence registration fees are not refundable under any circumstances.  A student remains liable for the registration fee in the event of residence cancellation.

Residence fees for the period January to June (semester 1) must be fully paid by 30 April.

Residence fees for the period July to November (semester 2) must be fully paid by 30 September.

Students with outstanding semester 1 residence fees will not be re-admitted into residence in the second semester until the first semester debt is settled.
