Accommodation near The University of Johannesburg

UJ, as the university is known colloquially, is a public institution and one of South Africa's largest comprehensive contact universities. It boasts a student body of 48 000, which is as racially and ethnically diverse as they come. Furthermore, it has a large constituent of international students, making it a university which truly represents the country's demographics.

The University of Johannesburg, like many of the country's other tertiary institutions, emerged in 2005 as a result of South Africa's restructuring of the higher education system. It is the result of a merger between the Rand Afrikaans University, Technikon Witwatersrand and the Soweto and East Rand campuses of Vista University. Given its various parts, it's not difficult to see why the university is indeed so large.

Today the University of Johannesburg occupies 4 campuses across Johannesburg in Gauteng, 2 in Auckland Park - Bunting Road and King's Way - Doornfontein and Soweto. The King's Way campus is the largest campus by far with the greatest concentration of students as well as hosting the administration body and the governance body.

There are 9 faculties in total, including Computer Science & Software Development; Art, Design & Architecture; Economic and Financial Sciences; Education; Engineering & the Built Environment; Health Sciences; Law; Management and Science.

UJ boasts spectacular facilities which enable students to get the most out of their time at the university. Where studying is concerned there are well-equipped libraries, lecture halls, conference venues and laboratories, while there are many other facilities too which ensure a holistic experience. There are health and wellness clinics, sporting facilities and of course, the cultural aspect of student life is not forgotten either with a number of cultural, political and other organisations playing an active role.

Busy, bustling and noisy on the weekend - nice vibe and plenty of spaces to hang out and chill, if that is what you are looking for. If not, don't go there. ;-)
