Yale Village

Welcome to Yale Village – where student living just got a serious upgrade! If you're a WITSIE, our spot is across the road from the WITS main campus entrance on Empire Road. That means walking to class is a breeze. Now, in true Respublica style, we're bringing you an all-inclusive student lifestyle. Brace yourself for res-wide Wi-Fi, weekly bedroom cleaning, parking, laundry, utilities, gyms, computer labs – and get this, it's all on the house! Yep, you heard that right. No extra costs. No laundry tokens. We've got your back. Safety? We take that seriously. We've got 24/7 security guards, camera surveillance, and biometric access control. But wait, there's more! Yale Village isn't just about study grind. We've got massive outdoor spaces, beautiful gardens, sports fields, a swimming pool, and tons of chill spots to read, study, or hang with friends. And guess what? Get ready for res life programming that'll help you connect, grow, and have a blast. Your dreams start here! So don't miss out – step up, move in, and join the community where student life goes to the next level! #YaleVillageLife

I joined Respublica over three years ago and managed one of the biggest student accommodation residences in the world, Hatfield Square. The lessons there have equipped me to manage and support any student community. I am excited to join the Yale Village family and lead the Yale Defenders to victory in all aspects of their life at Respublica!
