Midrand Diggs | An easy way to find and compare student accommodations

About Midrand Diggs

Looking for a student accommodation can be a mission. A long tedious and tiresome work! Often it means searching a lot of websites (of which some are bogus or unreliable) and driving around from one student accommodation to another.

Midrand Diggs takes away the burden and hassle of finding a student accommodation off your shoulders. We believe that finding a student accommodation should be easy. Hence our site makes finding and comparing student accommodations a piece of cake. Our team, having worked many years at various student accommodations, has a deep knowledge and understanding of student accommodations.

Unlike many student accommodation websites, we focus on one area, i.e, Johannesburg. We do not want to crowd and clutter our site with too many accommodations from everywhere which are of no use to students around this area.


Midrand Diggs lists accommodation information as provided by the respective student accommodations. We do not verify or confirm the credibility of the provided information. Therefore we are not responsible or liable for any inconvenience, damage or loss as a result of the information we post on this site. We urge users of this site to request to do site visit with the accommodation they choose so as to verify before making any financial commitments.
