New UFH student village set for completion this December

Despite delays caused by the national Covid-19 lockdown, the University of Fort Hare’s (UFH) new 2,047-bed student village will reach completion in December 2020. The new residence was unveiled at a roof-wetting ceremony, attended by vice chancellor of the university Professor Sakhela Buhlungu, contributing SMMEs from the local community, and members of the Alice business community. The development aims to address a major accommodation shortage at the university.
