UP Residences | Accommodation

The Department of Residence Affairs and Accommodation, fondly referred to as the TuksRes Family, is a stand-alone business unit, with various management teams serving residence students.

With 10 000 students in our accommodation spaces, the University of Pretoria is proud to be known as the largest residential university in South Africa. 

The Department of Residence and Accommodation is responsible for Residence Management and Student Life, Finance Administration, Placement Management, Accommodation and Maintenance Management, Student Support – Residences, Residence Systems and Food Services. 

By having a broad structure like TuksRes, one is able to manage the various needs of our student sector living in a residence.

Please note that some of our residences names have changed and you can find them here for easier convenience.
