I enjoy Universitas, it's close to everything, very quiet and has lots of trees and birdlife. I always enjoy staying in this area and can recommend it to others that need a sleep over. There are some overnight places that are not of standard but I always look at what other guests wrote on the accommodation review.
The Student Suburb
Universitas used to be one of the upper class areas in Bloemfontein about 15 years ago, but has since become a suburb where mostly the students live. With the University, two major high schools and a hospital all in the same suburb, it makes for a very busy and noisy place. Crime has also increased in this suburb which is a huge shame, but unfortunately the truth. It used to be and still is one of the most central suburbs to live in, but unfortunately not the most sort after one anymore. Sorry for being so direct.Jenny
Universitas- central point
My daughter is currently studying in Bloemfontein, so when i take her back to Varsity, we always have a car load to take back. Girls always 10 x times more baggage than boys....So we are always looking for a palce to stay for a weekend close and near to the University. Universitas is always the place we tend to choose as it is very central and doesn't matter which bed & breakfast or overnight place you choose, then Univeristas is close from all angles. Good place to stay and take a breather before the next load .....Zoe Scholtz - East London
