Accommodation near The University of the Free State

The University of the Free State is an exceptionally old tertiary education institution in the heart of South Africa's interior. It boasts a large and diverse student body, an active research arm, an academic record to be proud of and excellent facilities for staff and students which are combined with a reassuring support network on the academic and personal level.

The university is spread across 3 campuses in the Free State, with the original campus being situated in the heart of Bloemfontein - the City of Roses. The university came into being in 1904 under the name Grey University College. In 2003 it extended its reach to the eastern Free State's rural population and opened the Qwaqwa campus. In 2004 the South campus opened in the southern hills of Bloemfontein.

The university has 4000 staff members across the campuses and 33 000 students. There are 2000 international students too who represent 40 countries. The student body is spread across the faculties and incorporates undergraduate and postgraduate students.

There are 7 faculties at the university, which include the Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences, the Faculty of Education, the Faculty of Health Sciences, the Faculty of Law, the Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences, the Faculty of Theology and the Faculty of Humanities.

Research, understandably, plays an important role at the university, as attested to by research programmes such as the Advanced Biomolecular Research programme and Technologies for Sustainable Crop Industries in Semi-Arid Regions.

Academics and research aside, the university has a lively campus life with various student associations ranging from the political and cultural to religious and sport. There is also a wide support network which covers the medical and emotional needs of staff and students.

Bloemfontein Reviews

I found it quiet and relaxing
- Tshidi Shube

The road to Kloofeind, which is about 20km out of Bloemfontein, was very bad and had a lot of potholes
- Alta Steenkamp

Baie mooi plek skoon en netjies
- C Van Heerden

Beautiful Area
- Christo Zaayman

Baie mooi dorp maar munisipaliteit kan iets doen met die veilgoed sakke wat op die hoeke staan van die strate . Veilgoed soos die sakke geskeur het word nie op getel en skoon gemaak nie . Kan die stadsraad nie kaste bou so dat die veilgoed sakke daar ingeplaas kan word nie . Die plekke op die hoeke van die straat is veil en slordig .Jammer Bloem jy maak dit nie vir my nie
- Chris De Bruin

I love Bloemfontein, easy to drive around in and the malls are very good.
- Debbie Erasmus

Bloemfontein needs some attention - long grass and unmarked roads. It's a stunning city and it's a pity it's being neglected.
- Sonja Raasch

Bloemfontein is the best city to visit. I would like to visit again.
- Fulufhelo Thanyani

Bloemfontein was the best and very safe.
The mood was very lit, we did have the best time of our lives.
We really enjoyed, Ha Setjhaba, The Zone, Boompies Kitchen and off course Mahungra Car wash
The Soccer match Sunday and The Main Festival was on fire

- Keabecwe Moagi

Beautiful city with friendly people.
