University of Limpopo has its own campus accommodation for students, for which all students in need of accommodation at UL must apply in order to get rooms. The application form which every student completes to get an academic place at UL contains a section where the student can apply for accommodation. Unfortunately, UL cannot place every student into a residence, as it only has just over 6500 spaces for students. Those students who are not offered accommodation on campus or who prefer to stay off-campus are advised to obtain a place at University accredited off-campus residences which are privately owned. In the residences at UL there are house committees which see to the needs of residence students. They organise all the activities that relate to residence students. UL SRC has recently formed a day house for students who are not in UL residences. This committee oversees all the interests of off-campus students.
The Office of International Affairs helps first entering international students get accommodation on campus provided space is available, so it is advisable for international students to report to the office on the 1st day of registration to avoid disappointments. For postgraduate students the University has accommodation specifically for them but this on the basis that one can be accommodated provided space is available.
