We had a chat to the Residence Manager of Fountain Rez

Everyone is asking what the building next door Pick ‘n Pay in Rondebosch is, and how they can get in!

We’re super stoked that DigsConnect.com is the marketing partner of Fountain Rez - the incredible new private res in without doubt one of the best locations in Cape Town for UCT students.

We decided to have a chat to the new Residence Manager to find out more for you!


Why did FPG choose this location for Fountain Rez?

This is the perfect location to cater for students in and around Rondebosch.  It is convenient, and our students will have a secured direct link into Rondebosch on Main Shopping Centre, so parents need not worry that their children are walking down the street at night to get some shopping done or when going to the gym. It is also only 800m from the Jammie stop and in walking distance from UCT Upper Campus and 230m from Varsity College.


What makes Fountain Rez ‘stand out’ from the competitors?

Fountain Rez offers premier student accommodation,  with high end finishes in an idyllic location.  Fountain Rez is your home away from home where students come “home“ and not “go to res”. Our private rooms are 20m2, and bigger than what you would generally find.  We have an amazing rooftop entertainment area with an indescribable view, you must see it to believe it.  We have also thought of the finer details that will make it more comfortable for students living here. Come visit our showroom to see what I’m talking about.


What is your favorite thing about Fountain Rez?  

I have 3 favourites, location, security and of course the rooftop entertainment deck, have you seen the view? We have a great communal area on the roof, with TVs, braai area and so much more.  For security we have 24-hour onsite security with cameras setup all around the building. Each apartment is biometric access-controlled including our direct link into Rondebosch on Main.  We are within walking distance to UCT and Varsity College which makes Fountain Rez ideal for any student studying at these institutions.


Do you have study facilities in Fountain Rez?

Yes.  We have a great study room available and a relaxed meeting area in our lightwell on the 1st floor.


Last thing - are you going to be doing any community building/group activities for/with the Fountain Rez residents?

Definitely.  We want our students living at Fountain Rez to have a holistic experience focusing on both academics and community building experiences of student living.  Anyone who is interested in staying with us can call to set an appointment or just pop in at our applications office to view our showroom.
