Studying in Pretoria in 2021? Here’s what to look for – and what to avoid

January 15, 2021

So you’re looking for student accommodation in Pretoria for 2021.

You want to be close to all the good student areas. Shops, restaurants, cafes. All the places other students go to party. If you can walk to the bars and clubs, that’s awesome. But there’s more to student life than partying. Shocking, I know. But you’re going to want some privacy, too. And a secure place to work. Or just to get away from things. Being a student is a lot of fun, but it can be stressful, too.

The best student accommodation gives you the opportunity for some alone time. A room to sit back and think about the meaning of life and your place in the universe. After all, what the point of being a student if you can’t have pretentious thoughts about the Meaning of it All. More seriously, your time as a student is an opportunity to create a foundation for the rest of your life. You’re going to want space to work and think and get assignments done.

When looking at student residences, don’t just look at the fun communal spaces and the lounge facilities.Those are important. But you also need privacy and comfort. Secure student apartments where you can store your valuables and work on your future. It’s all about finding the balance.
