The “Res” at Total Concept Academy is in 7th Avenue Newton Park just a 5-minute stroll from the campus in Pickering Street and just around the corner from shops and restaurants.

The Residence

Here, students who are mostly from out-of-town, are offered accommodation on a contract for 11 months from mid-January to mid-December which coincides with the Academy’s academic year.
For students who have not been away from home before, the “Res” is a good “halfway stage” from being entirely responsible for themselves for transport and accommodation and alone in a strange town.

Our Rules

Here students have their independence yet are required to live by the Academy’s rules regarding behavior. The rules and the facilities provided are designed to encourage study and as all the residents are girls from the Academy who are busy in the same field of study, they are able to support and help each other with their studies outside the classroom. A spare therapy bed is at the “Res” to help them do their practical training.


Each room (11 in all) has its own built in cupboards, bed, wall mirror, bookshelf, desk and chair, and alarm system. There are 3 full bathrooms, a large fully equipped kitchen, a fully equipped laundry, and lounge with lounge suite TV etc. The garden is adequate for entertainment with a built-in braai and plenty of car park area. The property is on 24-hour contract with a local security company and in addition to each room having its own individual alarm and panic button, the house itself has an alarm which can be set when the house is vacated. The property is protected by electric fencing and a security gate is attached to the front door which is the only access from the street.


Garden maintenance, security, maid’s cleaning services, water, rates and municipal services are included in the rental price. An electricity meter is installed and the residents are responsible for electricity consumption.
