Arriving at university for the first time is a significant moment in the lives of many young students. Despite all the post-matric celebrations and dreams of independence, the cold welcome of an old-fashioned residence is sure to put even the most confident first-year student on edge. Fear not however, as all that’s needed is some trendy décor to make you feel right at home.

CampusKey, leading provider of premier and secure student living, has hit the nail on the head with their interiors. According to Leon Howell, MD of CampusKey, CampusKey together with Jan Botha of JBB Designworks were responsible for the interiors at CampusKey’s Rosebank and Observatory buildings/residences, the idea was to create a trendy interior, in line with what is happening abroad.

Says Botha: “We worked with a host of manufactures and had everything made to our specifications. Although we wanted a definite aesthetic that runs through the CampusKey family of buildings countrywide, the new CampusKey campuses have been updated to reflect new trends.

Howell, adds: “Student accommodation is no longer just about functionality, but also about creating a lifestyle, which is perfectly in line with what CampusKey offers. The interiors and décor have to be relevant to the target market and materials need to be robust and offer longevity. Students have access to various areas in which to study, play and socialise, including the main lounges, kitchens, TV lounges, meeting and gaming areas, braai facilities as well as their private en-suite bedrooms. We really do believe that great design can change lives.”

Howell further says: “CampusKey has grown into the premier provider of secure student accommodation through our unique understanding and commitment to students. Our aim is to make CampusKey your home away from home and our modern interiors definitely reflect that.”

Campuskey has a national footprint with student accommodation located in Bloemfontein, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, Potchefstroom, Pretoria and Stellenbosch. As a dynamic company they are constantly adding new campuses to their portfolio.
