What other fees are involved?
Students will be provided with Electricity and Laundry vouchers each month. They will be required to pay a top-up fee should they deplete the electricity and laundry vouchers.

Do Cash students pay the same prices as NSFAS students?

Is there a top-up for NSFAS students for Frederick Street for single and sharing rooms? If so, please provide further details?
At FSSA there is no top up for our NSFAS students for sharing rooms. The monthly rental for 2023 was R4,500 on the sharing rooms. Bursary and Cash paying students were charged R4,600 per month for the sharing rooms for 2023. The single rooms for both NSFAS and Cash paying, or Bursary will be at R5,140. Therefore, if you are a NSFAS student wanting to stay in a single room, there will be a top up required.
Is there a top-up for NSFAS students at EPSV?
There is no top up for NSFAS students at EPSV for shared rooms. For our single rooms a top up might be required if your NSFAS rate is less than our single room rental rate.
If I am a NSFAS student, can I be evicted?
Yes, you can be evicted. All students, if they do not pay or violate the residence rules, can be evicted.
Does NSFAS pay Adowa or does NSFAS pay the students and the students pay Adowa?
NSFAS pays the Institution. Each student will need to create an account with the 3rd party in order to make monthly payments to Adowa. The funds are then released, and students will pay for their accommodation through a 3rd party merchant (FUNDI & Imbizo, A.E Switch). The below payment process is explained by UJ for students: • Students will be asked to sign a consent form online on the UJ Portal. • Students will then need to upload their lease agreement and invoice documents online on the UJ Portal (10 months invoice). • Verification of documents will be done by Student Finance at UJ. • Loading of student allowances will be done by Student Finance at UJ. • Student will make payment for accommodation through various merchants (Imbizo, FUNDI, A.E Switch).
