House Tirisano is the ideal residence of choice for young men who are committed and dedicated to work hard, but also who have a thirst to have the time of their lives. Tirisano has trained mentors to guide residents, especially first-years, through this exciting and challenging period of their lives, while making sure that they enjoy the comfort and warmth of an environment that will come to feel like home.
Tirisano is founded on the six values of: Respect, Accountability, Sacrifice, Participation, Dignity and Integrity. We strive to portray these values in all that we do in our everyday lives.
Our House motto as well as house name is Tirisano, which simply means “working together.” We are the largest male residence in the University of Pretoria so it is essential that we work together to ensure the smooth running of our residence, as well as that we may achieve our goals each year. We work together to build and support one another so as to become right-minded members of society.
