The Hatfield Square precinct is ready to reclaim its legacy as Pretoria’s student district hot-spot for all the right reasons: a selection of restaurants and lifestyle outlets are open for business in the completely rebuilt student accommodation and lifestyle complex, owned by Respublica.
Pizza Hut and Fanakalo offer quick and affordable meals to students, while Rhapsody’s, offers the perfect venue to kick back and socialise after hours. Urbanite, a second on-trend restaurant and bar offering, will open its doors on 1 August 2017
Studio 88, Princess Hair Salon and Cross Trainer bring on-trend fashion and sportswear to the district, and several more retailers, food and beverage outlets and entertainment hotspots will open in due course.
“Respublica created the Hatfield Square precinct to offer a purpose built, mixed-use precinct that creates a safe, healthy, balanced student life, providing the perfect backdrop to students’ academic and social development,” says Respublica CEO, Craig McMurray. “We’re delighted to welcome our retail and lifestyle partners to the area, as they help us realise our vision of creating a Hatfield community that supports the city’s residents with all their needs.”
Within walking distance from the University of Pretoria’s main campus, Hatfield Square includes state-of-the-art student residences, retail and leisure facilities, specifically designed for Pretoria’s large student community from various campuses as well as the Hatfield public at large.
Registered students from any academic institution in Pretoria can apply to join Respublica’s various residences, which are close to public transport nodes, and offer a range of fully inclusive amenities including unlimited Wi-Fi, gym, multiple recreation rooms, outdoor courtyards, communal pause areas on each floor, laundry facilities, study rooms, computer labs and a swimming pool.
The varying accommodation configurations within individual residences make them accessible to students with diverse resources, with options ranging from standalone bedrooms with communal amenities to four-sleeper apartments using a shared bathroom as well as single-sleeper studios including an en-suite bathroom and kitchenette.
