No 5 Tolip Street, Westdene, which has been purchased to expand the JIAS complex.The University of Johannesburg had purchased a property next to the existing JIAS complex in Tolip Street, Westdene. Following renovations, this property will be used to house the JIAS administrative staff, and also to provide more parking. The existing administrative building at no 1 Tolip Street will be used to create more accommodation.
According to Prof Peter Vale, Director of JIAS, the purchase has resulted from rising levels of activity at JIAS over the past five years. ‘We are grateful that the UJ administration has recognised this, and has decided to expand our capacity. This bodes well for JIAS going into the future.’
