Nerina Residence

Nerina was founded in the early forties. The residence is a home to approximately 300 young ladies who are vibrant, driven and well-rounded. Our aim is to ensure that each student that sets foot in Nerina is granted an opportunity to grow, learn and to be the young lady that she aspires to be. Although Nerina is one of the smaller residences, the ladies who live in this house have big hearts and are motivated to reach their full potential by taking part in various activities such as sports, well-being, RAG, internal culture and external culture. A great emphasis is placed on excelling academically and each lady is motivated to do so by providing a conducive environment to study and by providing Wi-Fi. The ladies of Nerina live by certain values and traditions which challenges the individuals to be better and to do better. Nerina aims to prepare the ladies of the house to be young leaders when they leave the university life and step into the working environment.

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