Campus and Accommodation

First-class SRA Student Accommodation

To make the best of your SRA experience, we strongly recommend that our students make use of the housing facilities on campus. Accommodation is not managed by SRA, but by the SRA Property Trust. SRA students get preference to accommodation at Mount Simon Student Village. The largest majority of students prefer to stay on campus.

When a student is accepted for the accommodation, the parents / guardians sign a separate contract for a year and pay accordingly. A separate Application form for accommodation, quotations and lease are available on our website; or can be sent to students and parents via one of our consultants.

Meals are only included for High Performance students as part of the program fee.

Students can apply to various funding institutions for accommodation (see info in part 9 - Registration). We will assist with and advise on all your funding applications.

We provide you with a one stop service option for the accommodation and it will be our pleasure to assist you. Please contact our consultants and student advisors for more information. Please refer to the attached brochure for information regarding the Mount Simon Student Village.

To make the best of your SRA experience, we strongly recommend that our students make use of our housing facilities. They are however free to organise private accommodation if they so wish. The capacity of our student housing is unfortunately limited and sought after. We therefore recommend applying for registration and accommodation as soon as possible. When a student is accepted for the SRA accommodation, the parents/guardians of the student sign a contract for a year and pay accordingly. Students may also bring their own transport.

Home inspections are done weekly, because it teaches students how to run their own homes on a daily basis one day. It also includes tidiness (inside and outside), maintenance and pride in your property. Parents deserve a lot more respect afterwards!

To remain true to our commitment to excellence and high standards, students who fail will not be admitted for the next year. Furthermore, students who do not adhere to the house rules (see prospectus), stand the chance of losing their accommodation.

Private students

Students may stay in private accommodation. They may buy meals, and may use the other facilities such as the recreation room, pool, etc.
