GENERAL INFORMATION

Student at home is a student accommodation in a class of its own!

Being in the industry for many years we have managed to find the art of defining the perfect living solution for students. We see our accommodation as a bridging gap between being at home and the big wide world.

Our apartments are fully stocked with all modern equipment, perfect for student living.

This includes bed, desk, cupboard, tv and in the kitchen pots, pans, cutlery, crockery, kettle, fridge and microwave. All apartments have their own standard bathroom with shower, basin and toilet.

We have services that include uncapped wi-fi, 19 channels of dstv and a cleaning service once a week. We also provide linen, but at an extra cost of R300. (you have the option of keeping the bedding)

We have a laundry facility with four industrial washers and dryers. These are coin-operated machines.

Each room is fitted with a pre-paid electricity meter. Only the lights and plugs are charged on the meter, water and the geyser are for our account. (R100 per week)

 

We pride ourselves on three specific things, security, location and comfort.

We have on site 24 hour security, which means both entrances to the building as well as doing perimeter checks. We have cameras on every floor, plus a biometric fingerprint system, so that only tenants are granted access with their fingerprint.  We have very strict house rules, please see the below.

 

Our Location could not be more central. Adderley Street is a very popular street in Cape Town. It is near all main public transport terminals, shopping malls and universities and colleges.

Comfort is important for all tenants and we pride ourselves on a level of comfort to suit all the students’ needs.
