NSFAS to open student accommodation portal
NSFAS will open its student accommodation portal for students to apply for accommodation directly from the scheme in a pilot project to be implemented with identified institutions.
NSFAS is calling on all accommodation providers who have not yet registered their accommodation, to please visit https://www.nsfas.org.za/content/studentacom.html
now and load their properties to be considered for NSFAS beneficiaries. As an accommodation provider you will be able to:
• Provide property name
• Provide the location
• Load images for students to view the accommodation.
NSFAS will contact you and send a panel of experts to accredit and grade the properties to ensure that they are suitable for student living.
The NSFAS Student Accommodation is an initiative by the scheme to ensure that NSFAS beneficiaries stay in residences that are conducive for learning. The pilot project will enable both the scheme and accommodation providers identify gaps and mitigate any challenges envisioned for the full rollout.
