If your child is getting ready to go to university you are probably filled with a multitude of new fears – as if having a teenager isn’t stressful enough, right? This new phase of life will affect both you and your child, and is not something that needs to cause unnecessary stress. If you plan properly and your child is sufficiently prepared for entering this next life phase, you need to be ready to take a deep breath and simply be there to guide and advise your child.
If your child is studying away from home then you are going to need to seek out suitable student accommodation. You might be stressed about how close the accommodation facilities are from the campus, if there are any affordable options that are decent and if your child is going to be safe while he or she is off on this new adventure. At Student Digz we understand these fears and stresses and have made it our duty to present parents with absolute peace of mind.
All of our digs are situated in safe neighbourhoods. We place emphasis on our house rules and codes of conduct which ensures that your child is staying in a safe environment where he or she can socialise, study, relax and simply be happy. We have taken the time to build relationships with the surrounding universities which means that you can expect for your child to have access to integrated support systems, sport activities and events, as well as academics.
We offer student accommodation in the following safe neighbourhoods:
- Johannesburg – Parktown Views
- Braamfontein – Braamfontein Lofts, YMCA, Skyways and Dudley Heights
All of our digs have biometric access control systems in place which means that your child is safe from the threat of unauthorised access. We ensure that social workers are made available to provide advice and guidance. Our neighbourhoods will expose your child to diversity without creating unnecessary exposure to dangers and risks. We welcome parents to pay a visit to any of our digs and facilities for further assurance and for some more details on exactly what is on offer. Student Digz is also accredited for NSFAS funding, which is convenient for many students and parents.
Your child is going to spread his or her wings and fly soon! The best you can do is to ensure that they have a happy, positive, safe and comfortable environment in which to do so.
