Residential Service provides programs and services to all it community members. We embrace core mission of the University – “a place of quality, a place to grow, from hope to action through knowledge.” The department creates opportunities for students to experience all aspects of life outside the classroom through co-curricular and the living- learning environment, enriching the lives of our students and staff and contributing to a vibrant, collaborative, and diverse campus residence community that inspires excellence.


Residential Services has three fuci areas, each lead by a manager. The Student Housing Section (physical infrastructures/services/maintenance and assets), the Administration and Placement section and the Reslife unit (programming/activities/academic support/leadership development). We have a talented team of more than 50 staff members, all of whom are dedicated to ensuring that members of our University community, particularly our students, are poised for academic, personal and professional success.


We are here to sustain our communities resilience and advance the cause of creating good citizenship and a culture of support to our members of the residence and University community. As a member of this community we trust you will take advantage of the many opportunities available to you, and use the resources and relevant information found on this website to help maximize your University of the Western Cape experience.
