Residence Services is responsible for the smooth operation of the residence complexes on each of the three NWU delivery sites in Mahikeng, Potchefstroom and Vanderbijlpark.

We also ensure a safe, hygienic and well-maintained residence environment for conducive teaching and learning. We strive to make sure that all student residence selections and placements are unbiased and according to prescribed rules and regulations. 

Cancellations of residence placement by students are seen in a very serious light and each cancellation is followed up to ensure that we and our facilities are not the reason behind the cancellation by the student.
