A new residence building on the corner of Rose and Main Street in Mowbray will go some way towards addressing the student housing crisis gripping the Western Cape. Nationally current student housing can only accommodate approximately 18% of the total student enrolments in higher education, according to the Department of Higher Education. Student accommodation across the country and in the Western Cape in particular is in high demand, with new developments needed to match the growing numbers of students entering tertiary education each year.
