Student Life

We make student accommodation feel like your home away from home.

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

Studios@Burnett 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.
