Residences play an important role in campus life, particularly at the UFS where the individual residences have a long, respected tradition. Housing and Residence Affairs’ (HRA) main purpose is to offer a variety of accommodation to students on-campus, including UFS visitors. In addition, we have established an office within HRA to assist with off campus accommodation and the accreditation thereof, thus ensuring a safe and conducive environment for students in accredited off campus accommodation.

Through this, HRA strive to make provision for the diverse needs of its clientele, and to put into practice our vision, mission, and values.


To foster dynamic, diverse, and safe student living and learning environments.


As a committed, passionate team, we provide excellent and affordable living and learning environments for holistic student development.
