What is included in NEST's student accommodation?

At NEST we provide nearly everything you’ll need for your new living space! We provide water, a bed, access to DSTV & Netflix, rooftop gym, 15 gigs of speedy WiFi per month and monthly cleaning services. Check out the shopping list tab to see what you should bring with you. Basement parking and sleepovers are also available for an additional fee, just let us know!

While on-campus residences will ask you to vacate your room during the holidays, with us you can extend your lease and stay as long as you like, which may be an advantage if you’d like to explore more of the Mother City’s hotspots during your December break. 

Your WiFi package can also be upgraded from 15 gigs a month to uncapped for a once-off fee of R4500 per annum.

Please note that NEST is not NSFAS accredited.
