NSFAS Accomodation

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) says it is concerned and alarmed that students from Ehlanzeni Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) College have been compelled to find accommodation in public libraries and police stations.

This follows a report that students from Mapulaneng campus were kicked out of their private residential areas by landlords who demanded their rent.

The students were forced to sleep on the floor at the campus’s administration block and the library.

NSFAS Administrator Dr Randall Carolissen said the scheme made an upfront allowance to institutions in the first disbursement run in February 2019.

“This amount was sent to the colleges which had the capacity to disburse allowances to students. In some cases colleges requested NSFAS to take over the payments of allowances via the NSFAS wallet as they were struggling to pay all the students,” Carolissen explained.
