•  Should fewer meals be taken in the year, the balance will be credited to your student account at the end of the year.

•  Any meal credits will first be applied to cover any outstanding amounts on your student account.

•  Any remaining meal credits will only be paid out to you if your student account is fully paid.

Recess

(holiday accommodation)

Charged

per day

 

See TuksRes Guide for details.

•  Students will have to move to an allocated holiday residence for this period.

•  This fee is payable as the normal residence fees do not include holiday periods.

Meals

Residence students must pre-book meals in their residence or they can buy individual food items in the dining hall. Should the initial R14 400 which is billed to your account, not be sufficient for the year, further payments will be necessary to provide for additional meals.

 

Booked meals that have not been taken will be charged.

 

Should you not want to use the meal charge on your account, please contact [email protected] to reduce/credit the amount charged for meals (not needed) back to your student account.  The amount charged for meals and not fully used during the year will be credited back to your student account in December.   NSFAS students should contact our Bursaries and Loans department when experiencing issues in this regard at [email protected]  (attention Bursaries and Loans).

 

Paying for additional meals

Once the initial meals money loaded onto your student card at the beginning of the year is depleted, you may add additional meals money in one of the following ways:

  • Pay at the cashiers on campus, indicating that the payment is for meals.
  • Make a deposit (or EFT) to our ABSA bank account 214 00 000 54 (see our full bank details in the Fees and Funding brochure on our web page) using your student number as reference.  Notify us via email ([email protected]) that the payment made is for meals.
  • Make use of our online credit card payment option (see our web page for the link) to make a payment.  Notify us via email ([email protected]) that the payment made is for meals.
  • Should there be a credit balance on your student account, request us via email ([email protected]) to transfer an amount to your student card for meals.

Please note: Payments made at the cashiers will be activated on the same day, but the other payment options may take longer to be activated.

 

Breakage fees for residence students

During your stay in residence if any damage is done by you to the university property, a breakage fee will be levied on your student account.

 

Residence room fees

Students who intend to depart from their residence during the year must give NOTICE on their Student Portal not later than 15 August to receive any credit.
