Day residences bring students together 

Do you stay off-campus, in a student house, flat or with your parents?  

Why not join a day residence on campus? 

Joining a day residence will ensure that you don’t miss out on campus activities. 

Day residences at the University of the Free State function in conjunction with campus residences, except as a day residence member, you do not stay on campus. Each day residence is equipped with a gazellie, which functions as a social space, and kitchen and bathroom facilities.

As a day residence member you can take part in sport, cultural and leadership activities. There is also great social interaction as you meet a diverse group of friends.

All day residences participate in the Gateway Programme. As member of a day residence you will participate in all Gateway sessions and be guided through registration.

Your choices of day residences for women are:
  • Arista
  • Marjolein
  • Sonnedou
Your choices of day residences for men are:
  • Legatum
  • Veritas
Your choices of co-ed day residences are:
  • Imperium
  • Kagiso
