JIAS is based on a dedicated campus in the Johannesburg suburb of Westdene, near the University of Johannesburg. It offers beautiful accommodation facilities for fellows and other visiting scholars and writers, as well as conference and workshop facilities. The University of Johannesburg also bought a dedicated facility close to the main JIAS for use by postdoctoral fellows, full-time staff and visiting fellows. These offices offer a space for the fellows to work and engage with one another.
