CPUT offers residence space for almost 8 000 students. Our residences are spread across the Cape Peninsula in the areas surrounding our campuses.
Students who fail to secure accommodation on-campus and university leased accommodation often opt to stay privately, close to campus. Finding this type of private accommodation can be a challenge for students.
CPUT has an off-campus Housing Accreditation Program that advertises accommodation facilities that have been accredited by the University. This makes it safer and easier for students to acquire private accommodation on their own.
