“I would like to thank Urban Nest for their welcoming of the Olienhout residence. Since we have been here, we have received the highest standard of hospitality and service. The staff are efficient and friendly, always serving us to the best of their ability. The rooms are in immaculate condition, and provide a favourable environment to study and thrive in. The flexible cafeteria hours are a great help to students on the move and the food of a high standard. The facilities are exceptional, especially the study centre and gym which are most appealing. The one criticism I have is the lack of dryers in the laundry room. This, along with the small number of washing machines makes laundry an arduous task. Lastly, the biometric system is an innovative security measure, and this coupled with an active security force gives us peace of mind.All-in-all, the facilities and service are of a high standard and we look forward to staying at Urban Nest for the rest of the semester.”
Zain Makda – Urban Nest Resident (Olienhout)
“Providing excellent accommodation, Urban Nest is an excellent place for students. With great facilities available you will feel absolutely at home. The students are the number one priority with the staff doing all that they can to ensure that you are able to pursue your studies in a student friendly environment. Apart from the security, the best thing to look forward to is the food. A diverse menu is available to suit students’ many different appetites and schedules. Furthermore, one always has the option to make him/herself a meal in the comfort of his/her own room! Urban Nest is truly the perfect student hub!”
