UJ APK Buildings

Some of our campuses host shops for added convenience, especially for students staying in our rather comfortable residences and fully equipped apartments. UJ realises that the campus experience is integral to the life of its students – after all this is where the giants of industry often meet! For this reason all the campuses have meeting places, cafeterias or restaurants with some of the student centres housing book and gift shops, doctors and even hairdressers.
