Ikageng Residence

The name Ikageng translates to "Build Yourself" in Setswana/Sepedi.

We are ladies in blue and red with Libby, the ladybug as our mascot. The ladybug has a significance: so small, yet so important to our ecosystem. Libby symbolises good luck and good fortune. It is our tradition as ladies of Ikageng to greet, be polite and just like our mascot we tend to reveal our beauty we build towards our goals.

Our values encourage responsible behaviour, support an appropriate study culture within the residence and even with such vast diversity in the residence, our values help create the remarkable sisterhood that is built in our daily value-adding traditions.

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