STUDENT LIFE

The community in Festival’s Edge is underpinned by two core values that drive our student experience, namely respect and inclusivity. We have built a respectful environment where no-one feels left behind or excluded.

Festival’s Edge is student accommodation with a difference. The place has a community atmosphere where students can enjoy a superb lifestyle with the best rooms, quiet study areas and friendly social spaces. Also, tenants enjoy a vast support network which encourages new friendships and academic performance.

Our integrated Student Life Programme strikes a healthy balance between the academic, sports, culture, social and wellbeing needs of every resident. This programme offers our students the benefit of a full student experience in a balanced, productive and fun environment.

Move In!

With its clever design, combining private and social spaces with dynamic inhouse programmes, Festival’s Edge ensures you enjoy the full student experience.

Festival’s Edge is a NSFAS accredited student accommodation facility which offers fully furnished spacious student accommodation, 3 IT labs and studying areas with work stations, a convenient shop café on the ground floor as well as leisure areas including rooftop entertainment lounge with DSTV and foosball tables.

Festival’s Edge offers a vibrant and exciting social calendar including quiz nights, movie nights, celebrity concerts, braais and games nights. Our clubs cater for a variety of interests and facilitates every resident to make friends and become part our community.

We also offer academic mentoring and tutoring, as well as running in-house workshops for study skills, summarizing skills, CV development, and an incredible Young Entrepreneur programme. We welcome our first years, with an amazing and very exciting welcoming week, guiding them on their transition from school to University life. During this time students are able to make new friends and find their feet before the academic calendar begins.
