Madelief Residence

In the buzz and vibe of Pretoria lies an enchanting garden filled with 310 Madeliefies. This unique garden, House Madelief, is a home away from home. We pride ourselves in being known as the "Ladies of Tuks". Our values- Connectedness, Loyalty, Transparency, Charisma, Diversity, Trust, Commitment and Respect- is the foundation of our community.

To truly find a home away from home is a challenge for a first year student, coming out of high school and trying to find their way around university; but the love, warmth and friendship that Madelief offers is sure to make the adjustment an unforgettable experience.

The House Parent or Chairperson of the residence may be contacted for any residence-specific enquiries.
