Academia student accommodation at Stellenbosch University is set in the heart of ‘Eikestad’ (the ‘City of Oaks’). This means not only that classes are in walking distance – the Engineering Faculty is across the road – but that students can immerse themselves in the full social, cultural and educational experience of living in a university town.
The complex comprises 26 blocks totalling 954 beds in a mix of accommodation types. Some of the ground-floor units may be adapted for use by handicapped people.
Academia is set in landscaped park-like surrounds, with 24-hour security-controlled access. There are CCTV cameras in and around the premises, and officers on foot patrol. Residents gain access using their student card and those with vehicles must display a parking disc.
