Abstract

[Studentification is a relatively recent addition to urban studies and explores the economic, cultural and social impact of students residing in privately rented accommodation near higher education institutions. This emerging form of urban change has mainly received attention in the context of the global North, particularly the United Kingdom, with limited attention in the global South. In the South African context, there is evidence of the growth of a private student housing sector. Limited academic attention, however, has been paid to studentification in South Africa, except for case studies in Stellenbosch, Bloemfontein and Braamfontein in Johannesburg. Drawing on limited published academic material this review is supplemented by articles in popular press, government and property research reports to examine the development and growth of the private student housing sector and its linkages to studentification and urban change in South Africa.]
