Dear tenants,

As we have now moved into Level 1 and there has been an easing of some of the regulations around the use of common spaces, we have made updates and amendments to our House Rules.


During Level 1, the following updates will be made to SouthPoint’s current House Rules:

  • TV rooms and study rooms will begin to be opened and available for use by students, although social distancing will still need to be observed.

  • Decommissioned facilities in the bathrooms and kitchens will be reinstated, to better accommodate the increased number of students returning to our buildings.

  • Although we are in Level 1, students are still required to wear masks when in the common areas (anywhere in the building outside your room)

  • Any student or visitor who is not wearing a mask will be denied entry into a SouthPoint building.


Visitors will be allowed entry into SouthPoint buildings as per our normal visitor guidelines.

Please note that only two visitors will be allowed ‘per door’ at any given time. i.e. you cannot have more than four people (e.g. two legal tenants and two visitors) in a two-sharing room and you cannot have more than two people (e.g. one legal tenant and one visitor) in a single room

The national curfew time has been extended from 10pm to midnight. When the curfew is in effect no tenant will be allowed entry or exist unless in the case of emergencies.

The changes above will be implemented across all the SouthPoint buildings, nationally in the next 5 business days. 

Please note that the safety protocols and SouthPoint House Rules may be amended should be there a directive from the National Command Council that affect the organisation and one’s health.

Stay safe!

    Can those who are at home go back to their respective residences or must they have approval from their institutions?

    Dear SP
    Please allow me to return to res at New Market Junction. I’m a first year student and I still haven’t been given the green light by SP to return. Most of my classmates are back at their respective residences and have been attending extra classes offered by our lecturers at CPUT. I run the risk of failing simply because the course I’m doing can not be effectively tutored online. I hope to return to try and salvage the rest of the year.

    So I received an email informing me that I’m part of the 66% of students that are required to go back to Res and I was told to contact my res coordinator about that. I’m supposed to be going back tomorrow coz that’s the date I selected for my return, but I haven’t got an email or anything from SP

    Just so I get this corretly, the rule about visitors… If I’m in a single room, I’m only allowed one visitor thus making us 2 in the room or am I allowed 2 visitors?
