Zinnia Residence

House Zinnia has been making magic happen since 2003. We are not only a house, but a home to 320 beautiful pixies (our first year students) and fairies (our semis and seniors), that happily live on the Groenkloof Campus of the University of Pretoria. House Zinnia is the place where pixies are free to spread their wings and become beautiful independent fairies. This is a place where these fairies can spread their wings even further and enter the life beyond varsity.

We strive to always leave a trail of memorable fairy dust everywhere we go, making sure that all the great memories we make are never forgotten and always pleasurable. We have a wide diversity of fairies that call House Zinnia a home and who share our important values.

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