We did extensive research of best-practice in such Public-Private Partnerships, and confirm that we are satisfied that the relationship with Urban Nest / Respublica has delivered in accordance with our requirements and expectations.
TUT has enjoyed a relationship with Respublica for 2 years now and is satisfied with both the housing and associated services provided.
The RBI student body has been extremely satisfied with the quality of accommodation offered, the courteous and assisting nature of the on-site residence staff, as well as various academic and community building initiatives organised by Respublica.
I can report that all students appear to be extremely happy with the standard and quality of accommodation offered. I have found the Respublica management to be extremely cooperative and helpful at all times, and highly responsive to my queries and requests. The on-site Residence Management structures appear to be attuned with student’s need and behaviours and as such can provide regular and important feedback to me on key issues with regard to student behaviours and habits. I have no hesitation in recommending this environment to other bursars and students.Ms Lesego Jerrams, Bursary Manager
