|Varsity Lodge is a unique investment to overcome the accommodation problems
of students at the PUK. The strict precautions taken with lodging at the
university's hostels have caused a sense of uncertainty amongst students
about their lodging for the next year of studies.
The number of students at the PUK has increased dramatically from 2001 to
2002 and this growth is expected to continue for 2003. There is a shortage
of accommodation for the current students, not to mention the new student
The aim of this development is to create an atmosphere where students can
enjoy their academic and social lives to the full. (Varsity Lodge is within
walking distance from the University and the "Bult" - the gathering place
of the students).
Varsity Lodge is 161 units that consist of one and two bedroom accommodation
as well as under-roof parking for each student. There is 4 blocks with a
courtyard and garden so students can relax in safety. The main entrance
to each block is controlled by security control. Furthermore there are high
security walls with an intercom system, separate laundromat, swimming pool
Construction of the first phase of 48 units will start in July 2002 and
will be ready for occupation on 1 February 2003.
The units are spacious and comfortable - equipped with an electrical pay
meter and a computer point for internet access. Investors are being offered
two methods by which to acquire accommodation for their children.
The investor will pay a levy of R
198-00 p/m because the renting company will do the maintenance. The
rented units will be furnished at an extra cost.

and sold at a fixed amount from R 53,650 for
4 years or other terms to suit the student's needs. The accommodation

family's needs changes.
