Fountain Rez is a student accommodation complex in the heart of student life in Cape Town: Rondebosch, in the City’s Southern Suburbs.
From UCT students to Varsity College students, and students at other tertiary education institutions within the Southern Suburbs, like the Silwood School of Cookery, our student housing provides a safe, convenient, and student-friendly student accommodation solution.
Fountain Rez is the exclusive student accommodation you have been waiting for!
A stone’s throw away from UCT, Varsity College, and Silwood School of Cookery, there is no excuse to be late anymore!
Fountain Rez’s security is designed to give you peace of mind. One of the top features is a state-of-the-art biometric system, which not only grants access to student rooms and apartments, but also to Rondebosch Main shopping centre, which we have a direct link to.
Our accommodation brings a new meaning to convenience, with a secure, direct link into the Rondebosch Main shopping centre, which is home to Rondebosch’s Pick n Pay, Clicks, Zone Fitness, a number of eateries and restaurants, as well as a Nedbank and various ATMS – meaning your shopping, food, banking and gym requirements are literally on your doorstep.
There is also a Woolworths just meters away – and a Checkers across the road.
Need a textbook? UCT’s preferred supplier, Van Schaik Bookstore is directly opposite our student residence – less than a minute’s walk.
Forgot to print and bind your assignment? No stress! There’s both a copy shop and a Post Net a quick 2min walk from Fountain Rez.
Keen on hitting the gym? To make your gymming experience more convenient, we’ve worked out a discounted rated for our residents to go to Zone Fitness at the Rondebosch Main shopping centre, which Fountain Rez has a secure direct link to. Gym fees are an optional extra on your rental agreement, which mean that you won’t have to worry about paying every month.
Fancy a walk, or a game of soccer or touch rugby? Rondebosch Park is a short 10min walk from Fountain Rez.
Transport & Parking
Situated on the corner of Main Road and Belmont Road in Rondebosch, means that getting around is also made simple. Catching a bus or a taxi is almost instantaneous, while Rondebosch Train Station is a short 5min walk away. With our student housing being in the heart of Rondebosch, also means that there are plenty of Uber and Taxify drivers in the area. Need to catch a Jammie Shuttle? UCT’s Lower Campus is a short 10min walk away. The Residence Loop bus also stops 2 minutes away at UCT’s Groote Schuur Mansions Residence in the evening.
While we encourage our student residents to make use of public transport, we do also have parking bays available as an optional extra. There is also a car wash service that operates from Rondebosch Main.
Need to fill your tank? No stress! A 1min drive from Fountain Rez will take you straight to the BP petrol station, where you can fill up.
Fountain Rez has an amazing rooftop, which is the perfect spot to chill after a long day of studying or in your downtime over the weekend.
When it comes to food, our student apartments have stunning kitchenettes, but if you’re not in the mood for cooking, or feel like meeting up with mates for a bite to eat, there are a wide range of eateries and restaurants in the area. Rondebosch Main shopping centre, which we have a direct link to, has a McDonald’s, Kauai, KFC, Nando’s, and Down South Food Bar. There’s also a Sticky BBQ across the road, as well as a Steers, Debonairs, Sakura Asian Cuisine, and Cocoa Wah Wah. Top tip: If your relatives come and visit and you want to impress them: take them for coffee and cake at Peacock Tea & Coffee inside Rondebosch Main.
All of our student apartments also come equipped with LED TVs, as well as uncapped 10mbps fibre lines, but if you’re in the mood for live entertainment, the Baxter Theatre Centre is a mere 8min walk from Fountain Rez. The Baxter is a subsidiary of the University of Cape Town, and as such, offers students from all tertiary institutions discounts on most of their shows (just remember to take your student card!)
