UFS South Campus expands

A new residence is being built for the South Campus.

There has been a great influx of students to the University of the Free State in Bloemfontein in the recent years. At the moment the number of students who attend class at the South Campus stands at 1673. These students either stay at the Bloemfontein campus or in private accommodation.

The newly-planned residence will provide two hundred and fifty beds within two main blocks – each consisting of three floors. Since the campus is located in a predominately industrial area with very few housing facilities in the area, this will fill the urgent need for accommodation.

Each floor of the residence will consist of two wings with forty beds and twenty double rooms. In addition, each floor will have separate laundry/drying and cleaners’ facility shared by both wings on that floor. Each wing will have its own ablution block, study room, communal lounge, and kitchen.

Four separate single-room flats will also be available – each sharing a lounge, kitchen, and bathroom, with a laundry facility separate from that of the main blocks.

The South campus provides academic access to the UFS for matriculants who do not meet the entry requirements for a mainstream degree; this is done through the University’s Preparation Programme and Extended Degree Programmes.

The building project is scheduled for completion by the end of June 2016.
