Find your new digs

CAMPAIGN: South Point Central helps students attract new accommodation.

For many people commuting from home to university each day is not an option because it’s simply too far.

On the other hand, first-year students are keen to take on the lifestyle of a tertiary school student and move away from mom and dad as fast as possible.

City Buzz cares about you so we’re sharing our knowledge of student residences near Wits University and the University of Johannesburg.

  • South Point Central is taking on a massive drive to get students through their doors this year. You can find them on Melle and Juta streets in Braamfontein.


  • J One Properties on the corner of Leyds and Biccard streets also caters to the student crowd and has a number of room options for students. Sharing or residing on your own, life in university is sure to be a blast in your J One pad.


Student Digz on Biccard and Kotze streets is a stone’s throw away from the Gautrain and Joburg Theatre and, therefore, caters to all entertainment and transport needs. With so much to do in close proximity, you’ll never need to leave the area.


Looking for a place to settle for the year can be a daunting task, but all you need to do is get looking on the net, asking around and, even better, get walking through the area to see what’s out there.

As an informally labelled ‘student village’, Braamfontein offers a lot for the scholars at UJ and Wits.
