Orientation is exciting in the sense that it will help you know our buildings and staff before lectures start. It will also have numerous educational and entertaining activities that will challenge your thinking, interpersonal skills and physical fitness. You will meet different people who do not speak, look and dress like you which will grow the great type of gentleman we want from you at this diverse residence.

  • R300.00 cash for orientation pack & R550.00 cash for meal card
  • A plain black golf t-shirt and a plain black rugby short (preferably from PEP)
  • White takkies (strictly a Tomy)
  • Formal wear

Please note that orientation is not covered by NSFAS or any other bursary and will therefore need to be paid for in cash

Once again we welcome you to Xanadu Residence and we look forward to having you in our residence to experience this once in a lifetime opportunity.
