Student Life and Residential Services

CPUT Residence Department: What we’re all about

We strive to accommodate at least 7 800 students each night in our comfortable and conducive CPUT residences throughout our academic period. After all, our students need a convenient place to lay their heads to rest after a tiring day. Within an almost universal feel to all our residences, we strive for better standards, comfort and security for the convenience of our students. We offer both single and sharing rooms, with communal facilities to create a pleasant family environment for students.

CPUT residences are open to both local and international students. Residence life is a holistic experience, where you become a member of a diverse and stimulating community. You’ll get to know some of the students you share classes with, and some of you will develop close, lifelong friendships.

You’ll also be exposed to many opportunities for personal development and learning ensuring that when you graduate, you not only leave us with a qualification, but the necessary life skills to excel in the outside world. The learning experiences we provide in residences can be grouped into three main areas:

  • academic support
  • social development
  • health and wellness

Our departmental role is to listen to our students, provide the best services we can, give assurance of safety during their academic experience and increase our capacity as a university.

Residence accommodation

The Cape Peninsula University of Technology has more than 25 different residences. However, not all of these are at the Main Campus nor do they all offer the same facilities.

As an international student, it is important for you to take note of the following:

  • You must indicate on your application form if you wish to make use of Cape Peninsula University of Technology accommodation.
  • The allocation of places is subject to availability.
  • As an undergraduate you will most likely be placed in a double room that you will share with another student.
  • Once you have committed to accepting a place (in your confirmation of acceptance letter), you will be held liable for the entire year or semester.
  • Most residences are self-catering and do not, therefore, provide any meals. There are however catering ones and mainly for undergraduate students.
  • The residences have communal bathrooms and toilet facilities, coin-operated automatic washing machines, tumble dryers, irons, public telephones and TV rooms.
  • You must supply your own pillows, fitted sheets, duvet and duvet covers or sheets and blankets. In some instances arrangements may be made to supply you bedding at a nominal fee for the first three days of your stay at the residence. During this time you are expected to organise your own bedding.
  • Also note that you will have to purchase your own cutlery and crockery, kettle, microwave, etc. for preparing your meals.
  • While you can remain in residence during the April and September break, you will have to make special arrangements with the residence authorities should you wish to be in residence during the June/ July and December/ January breaks. Such arrangements will be at an additional cost.
