What does registration at a town residence entail?

Register with a residence

Register to be part of a town residence and form part of the vibrant and organised student life on campus.

Get own accommodation

Registration with a town residence does NOT mean that physical accommodation is provided to students.

Be part of the family

Registerd students will be under the guidance of a House Parent and a House Committee.

A town residence functions exactly as a campus residence to the extent that students can participate in the full student life experience, such as sports, culture, community service (SRCS), current affairs, academic support, etc.

Although town residence students have their own private accommodation in Potchefstroom, the 5 town residences have offices and clubhouses on campus where students can meet. There are three ladies’ and two men’s town residences.

Membership payment

All prospective town residence students must register online via the NWU website for the town residence of their choice and pay electronically (EFT) or via a direct bank deposit. You will immediately see on the website whether there is still space available in the town residence of your choice. PLEASE NOTE: There are only 350 applications per town residence that will be accepted. If your first choice is already full, we encourage you to apply at one of the other ladies’/men’s residences.

An amount of R400,00 (excluding residence clothing – payment of clothing and procurement will be handled separately) is payable to be registered as a member of a Town Residence and must be paid with an EFT or at your bank with a deposit. (Details will be emailed to the email address entered in the registration process). This registration fee is used for residence clothes, functions and other student activities.
