How Do I Apply?

Applying for a Proper Living property is simple. Just click “Apply Now” on our homepage and start flying through the process. If you struggle to figure it out, maybe consider taking a gap year.

What Documentation Will I Need To Apply?

We need to make sure you exist and aren’t wanted by The Hawks, so you’ll need the following boring docs: Proof of Identity, Proof of Residence, Proof of Funds & Proof of Studies/Job. Requirements will differ depending on whether you’re a Saffa resident, Foreign Resident or a Financial Aid student.

Who Can Live At A Proper Living Property?

Any student or young professional with a sense of humour or who at least says hey to others in the lift.

How Do I View A Room?

Take a room tour right here on this website. If you wanna get a feel for the place, you can book an appointment on our website too.

How Do I Know If My Application Has Been Received?

Once your application is completed on our website and the required documents have been uploaded, you will receive an application approval email from the Proper Living team. If there’s any information missing, we’ll tell you about it. Do. Not. Stress.

How Do I Know Exactly Which Room I’ve Been Allocated?

One of the reasons people love Proper Living is that you can choose the exact room you want, like booking seats on a plane. If for some reason we can’t give you the room you’ve applied for, we’ll give you a call and hook you up with a similar option. Please note that it helps to pay your deposit on our site before calling it yours.

What Fees Are Payable With My Application?

Zero fees. See it as a housewarming gift.

What year am I applying for?

2022. You'll be able to move in from 15 January 2022.

What Fees Are Payable Before I Can Occupy My Room?
