Nsfas Accomodation at UJ

NSFAS loan may be used to pay tuition fees, books (R3000) & university accommodation fees.

The loan also pays for approved selected off campus accommodation (see list on  UJ website - click on Finance (top right), then Nsfas (in Quick links on the right),


  • NSFAS only funds the cost of accommodation of students who live in accredited off-campus accommodation. The amount is R2500/month (shared room). It is the same for all accomodation. You will get a card from Nsfas and use it to pay your rent.

  • Students must set up appointments with the NSFAS office to complete a loan agreement form. During this appointment students must hand in two copies of a pro-forma invoice (a preliminary invoice) from the establishment concerned; 
You must not pay a deposit to the owner of your room ...Nsfas will pay it for you.


Note also that learners at UJ can get food coupons at the cafeteria (meals for free !)
