SOUTH POINT RETURN-TO-RES ONLINE BOOKING APPLICATIONS OPEN ON MONDAY, 08 JUNE 2020

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 06 JUNE 2020


Dear student,


As SA moved into Level 3 from 01 June 2020, SouthPoint and the universities are gearing up for the return of students to contact learning and residential living. SouthPoint will take a phased approach with students returning to its residences, which will reopen to selected students from 8am on Monday, 15 June 2020.


Returns will be managed through SouthPoint’s online application portal, with the process as follows:

  1. MEET THE CRITERIA: Under Level 3, and as outlined by the Minister of Higher Education, Dr Blade Nzimande, only students who meet specific criteria will be able to return. Criteria to meet prior to applying on the portal:
    • Students who are in the final year of their programmes, scheduled to graduate in 2020; or
    • Final year students who require access to labs, tech equipment, data and connectivity; or
    • Health Science students in all years of study who require clinical training; or
    • Post-Grad students who require lab and tech equipment; or
    • Vulnerable students who face extreme difficulties in their home learning environments (e.g. those who don’t have reliable access to Wi-Fi or connectivity; those who live in unsafe or overcrowded environments; those whose home facilities are not conducive to studying; those whose family dynamics have a negative impact on your ability to study).
  2. USE THE ONLINE APPLICATION PORTAL, WHICH OPENS AT MIDNIGHT ON MON, 08 JUNE 2020:
    If you meet the above criteria, then log on to https://intake.staysouthpoint.co.za ) and fill in
    the health screening survey. Please note that the online health screening is compulsory.
  3. MAKE SURE YOUR ACCOUNT IS UP-TO-DATE: Only students whose accounts are up-to-date
    will be allowed to return.
  4. AWAIT YOUR CONFIRMATION FROM SOUTHPOINT: Please note that you will not be able
    to return to residence until you receive an official confirmation communication from SouthPoint. Please note that no walk-ins will be accepted and that all students’ biometrics have been deactivated as a health and safety precaution – you will not have access to your building without completing this process.


If you have any further queries or concerns around the return process, or your account, please contact admin@staysouthpoint.co.za (please note that this email address is only monitored during standard
office working hours, so there may be a delay in our response to after-hours queries).


Stay safe,

SouthPoint

          Hi Nkosi,

          What issues are you experiencing we would be happy to assist you?

            So for us to be able to fetch our study materials that we left at res we also have to apply for moving back in? Even though we don’t want to move back in?

          • South Point
            11th Jun 2020

            Hi Akhona – there is no distinction between the two. Both requests will require pre-screening, clearance, temperature screening and biometric access – therefore the application process remains the same.

      SP wants us to upload the statement. For NSFAS UP students, UP normally pays towards the end of June if not July. It pays the debt quarterly. So we are all in areas because of that. Can we be considered.

      • South Point
        9th Jun 2020

        Hi Ernest – kindly proceed with your application. NSFAS students should be cleared for online boarding.

        6th Jun 2020

        I am a final year student at wits and I did go through the application but I did not get granted to return to res as I need a medical certificate to prove that I’m negative for covid. Probably because I marked that I have difficulty with breathing and that is only because I am asthmatic and I tend to get difficulty of breathing during the cold season. I cannot afford to go test for covid as it is expensive, so what do i need to do to be granted access to return to res and I am not in a study friendly environment
