CPUT Application for Accommodation 2022-2023

CPUT Application for Accommodation 

Application process for accommodation

The application form from CPUT Registration office contains two sections: academic and accommodation. This makes it workable for the two sections to separately reach the academic departments and the Housing Unit simultaneously.

This permits time to do selection and placement and communicate with students. This likewise permits the unit to capture the applications for first-year students using its staff component without having to resort to contract.

Letter from registration

The current letter that goes out to first-year student applicants from academic departments needs to be refreshed (Bellville Campus). The different departments write different letters and in some instances, the letters refer to a Placement Officer who left the institution five years ago. The academic departments should leave the accommodation part to Housing, as the unit will on its own respond to applicants.

First Year students

First Year students who would have written and passed matric at the time of selection will be picked and placed during the October / November selection period. First-year students who are still waiting for their matric results at the time of selection can only be picked and placed at the beginning of the year. For them to be selected, the Housing Unit will consider the following:

  • that they applied for accommodation
  • proof of having passed matric
  • acceptance to study at CPUT
