Toplin House has become a home away from home for many of us students. It is not only my sanctuary but a place where I have built very good friendships. The chill room is always buzzing with conversation and laughter. And the kitchen is the best place to catch up with friends while making meals.

Our rooms are nice and spacious and are big enough for my roommate and I. But I often use the study room to study for tests and exams where it is very quiet and conducive to my studies. Thankfully during quiet hours everybody is respecting of one another.

The free Wi-fi we have here makes sure we are never bored. We can go on Facebook and Youtube at any time of the day and the connection stays strong.

The game room is another spot where we are able to chill out and wind down from a long day or week.

We stay in a very safe place with 24-hour security. With heat detectors in all rooms and exits to outside stairs in case of emergencies, for our safety, we could not be safer.

More than anything Toplin is great because everybody is friendly with everyone. And this creates a great living environment which is great when you live so far from home.

The world is such a cruel place but with the right hospitality by your side all worries become a fury tale.

Finding affordable student accommodation is an everyday struggle for students in the Western Cape.

Universities receive thousands of students annually and leave some of the students homeless.

Looking at the statistics of the Bellville situated universities; Cape Peninsula University of Technology accommodates around 8000 students across its 34 residences. University of the Western Cape accommodates around 3.300 across its residents. According to these numbers this means the is really demand for student accommodation since the number of students each year is growing. These are student accommodations that have managed to turn to be homes to many students are Toplin House, Park Central Lifestyle and Kruskal House.

These accommodations mentioned above are rated one of the best in town one situated in Parow and the other in Bellville. The facilities of these buildings speak for themselves, having a fitting of the modern technology that every student wishes for but more import the safety regulation is one of fundamentals.

Living in these accommodations comes with benefits example: as a student you are offered gym membership to certain gyms … isn’t that great!.

I have lived in two of the three accommodations and I felt in love with both of them, loving each and every moment. I thank the building owners, student Liaisons Officers, Administration officer, cleaners etc.

To all those who want a well structured and safe student accommodation look no further.

Remember if you can live under rules and regulations this is “the place to live”…why….because “I’m living the life”.
