Tuksdorp Residence

Welcome to Tuksdorp, the home of international and postgraduate students. Tuksdorp is ‘n diverse complex where a wide variety of people meet with one common goal – to achieve academic success. The people here come from all walks of life and live together in our own complex, made up of smaller houses. The size of the houses vary and each house has its own subculture. This all adds to the exciting times we experience in this place we call home. We invite you now to join us and share in some of the adventures forming part of our lives.

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