Of those who need housing in South Africa, almost 69% earn less than R1500 a month that make the housing process a difficult and unaffordable task. These potential dwellers could be regarded as a vulnerable section of the dwelling community that needs support and guidance. Housing should be seen as a process that addresses man within his psychosocial context. The UP Mamelodi campus is situated in the middle of a fast growing housing node and should be involved in the housing process by means of a Housing Support Centre and continuous housing research. The intention of this study is to emphasize the interrelationship between housing, housing needs, human needs and housing support.
