University Of Pretoria Accommodation

University of Pretoria Accommodation

The Department of Residence Affairs and Accommodation, fondly referred to as the TuksRes Family, is a stand-alone business unit, with various management teams serving residence students.

With 10 000 students in our accommodation spaces, the University of Pretoria is proud to be known as the largest residential university in South Africa. 

By having a broad structure like TuksRes, one is able to manage the various needs of our student sector living in a residence.

Please note that some of our residences names have changed and you can find them here for easier convenience.

How to apply for residence placement

Prospective Applicants

Prospective undergraduate and postgraduate applicants may apply for accommodation together with their study application online. It is not necessary to complete an additional form. Applications for the University of Pretoria open on 01 March each year. A preferred residence of choice may be indicated on the application, but placement cannot be guaranteed.

If you want to apply for a residence after the UP study application has been submitted, you can do so online via your UP Portal.

Note: Postgraduate Applicants: Only students who are applying for a postgraduate study programme may apply for postgraduate residences. These applicants are considered once the student has been provisionally admitted for a postgraduate study programme.

Residence of choice: Students who wish to apply for a specific residence may indicate their residence of preference in the space provided on the online application. Placement at a preferred residence cannot be guaranteed as residence place is very limited.

Health Science Applications: Students applying for a study program in the Faculty of Health Science first apply for placement at the Groenkloof or Hatfield campuses. As soon as the student is admitted for such a program they will automatically be moved to a residence at the Prinshof campus, subject to the availability of place.

Renewal of placement for current residing students:

Current residing students must apply to renew their placement every year. Application is available on the UP Student Portal at the start of the second semester. You can get the information here, on page one.

Due to limited place, it is usually not possible to re-allocate all current residents placement in a residence for the following year. Please note that placement is based on academic merit.

New Senior Applications:

Registered students who have not previously resided in a residence can also apply via their UP Portal. Applications open at the start of the second semester.

Placement is not automatic and is subject to availability as the demand for residences is greater than the availability. Placements for non-residing students are also based on academic merit.
