Residential life

Living on campus provides students with the opportunity to experience university life in a very particular way, to meet new friends and forge lifelong friendships. Our hostels have been designed to encourage relaxing and socialising and at the same time provide students with privacy and the necessary facilities to study. The hostels are in close proximity of the main buildings and Tygerberg Hospital.
