The University has a stated objective, of ensuring student life that contributes towards a conducive living and studying environment. A critical aspect in this regard is adequate student accommodation. It is in this context that the 2000 bed student accommodation complex is being constructed on the foot of the mountain overlooking the SMU campus.
During a recent site visit by a delegation led by the Vice – Chancellor, Prof. Peter Mbati, the team was informed that Phase 1 of the 2000 bed accommodation project has reached approximately 30% completion. Interestingly, it is envisaged that this phase will be completed by December 2022.
According to Ms. Nangamso Makgoka, Acting Director Built Environment, the interesting part of the project is that the 2000 bed residence’s foundation was built on a bed rock, thus giving assurance on the longevity and durability of the buildings.
