VTC - Residence and Catering Services

About us

Residences and Catering Services at the Vaal Triangle Campus of the North-West University (NWU Vaal) strive to ensure that a living and learning environment is the foundation of their residence culture. The residences are situated on the banks of the Vaal River and the residential life forms the core of student life at the Campus. The on-campus residences are situated in a proclaimed nature reserve. We offer pleasant accommodation that is conducive to education, study and student development and where young people can live independently in a home away from home.

The various ladies’ and men’s residences on campus are all situated within walking distance from the academic and administrative buildings. The NWU (Vaal) has ffive residences of which three are situated within the grounds of the Campus and two is situated in Vanderbijlpark. All the residences are self-catering.

Every effort is made to ensure that students' residence life experience will foster their holistic development as well as being fully supportive of their academic programme.
Residence life is a special experience. Staying in a residence is an extension of students' university education, where they can benefit from all the facilities and services such as student learning centres, social and sporting activities, life-skills and peer-tutoring programmes.

A residence is a community in which one meets a range of diverse students and forges lifelong friendships.
