In October 2004, the Council of the University of Pretoria made an executive decision to streamline all the various functions related to residences under one business unit. This was to alleviate the various silos that existed all over campus and therefore the Department of Residence Affairs and Accommodation (TuksRes) was born.The offices of TuksRes are situated at 90 Duxbury Road, Hatfield, Pretoria.
