University of Limpopo (UL) Accommodation / Residence

Student Accommodation

The university has limited spaces in the residences. Therefore, students are encouraged to apply timeously.

Accommodation is provided for students in various residences on campus in well-designed, comfortable rooms that ensure an optimum atmosphere where students can live and study.

At the Turfloop Campus food services have been decentralised to various residences and students can select a food outlet they wish to use. Meals at Medunsa campus are prepared in an ultra-modern kitchen and served in a central cafeteria.

NB!! Admission into an academic programme does not automatically mean a successful admission into any of the university residences. An application for accommodation must be submitted separately to the Residence / Housing Administration.
