Onderstepoort Residence is the student residence of the only Veterinary Faculty in South Africa. Although it is situated in the quiet suburb of Pretoria North it is still part of the University of Pretoria. The local and international students who call Onderstepoort home form a melting pot of culture and backgrounds, the common thread uniting them being a passion for animal health and welfare.
Onderstepoort or OP as it is commonly known, provides housing to undergraduate and postgraduate students and boasts a unique campus, with Onderstepoort Residence being the largest student residence in the University of Pretoria. No other student residence in the country has students who can fall asleep to the bellows of bulls in their backyard!
Those fortunate enough to live at OP have found that it is far more than a University residence, it is a place where memories are made, life skills are learnt, and where friends become family.
