Being historically what was called Wits Tech, this is a sciences campus with engineering and built environment courses. The Adowa Ellis Park Student Village is located within 50m of this campus. As the sciences are very campus centric (with laboratories and use of other equipment), this student village is in a prime location to offer students easy access between their home-away-from-home and campus. Late nights on campus do not have to be a security risk as the Adowa security can accompany students to and from campus within organized hours.
