Student Accommodation

Accommodation partnership to advance student experience.

The IIE’s Varsity College and DigsConnect have announced an exciting and strategic partnership aimed at alleviating student accommodation challenges.

This collaboration will provide students with an online platform where they will be able to access varying types of safe accommodation options within an 8-kilometre radius of all eight of The IIE’s Varsity College campuses.

Says Louise Wiseman, Managing Director The IIE’s Varsity College: “We are committed to providing our students with a holistic tertiary experience, which will now include access to a professional online accommodation marketplace. We have spent a number of years seeking an answer to our student accommodation challenges. We work with a number of accommodation providers already, but this partnership will also allow us to bring them all under one umbrella.

DigsConnect began in Cape Town but has been extending its services to other cities and this works for us, given our national footprint. It is our hope that, in the not too distant future, we will also be able to provide accommodation options that are limited to just The IIE’s Varsity College students, through DigsConnect.”
