Student Residence

Why Student Residence?

Most volunteers working at a volunteer project in Cape Town stay at our Volunteer House. However, the Volunteer House only offers shared rooms. If you prefer a single room, then our Student Residence is your best option.

You share the accommodation with students from our language school. The main age group is 17 to 25.

20 single rooms each equipped with a single bed, a washing basin, a desk and a wardrobe. There is also a safe in each room. 

There are two lounge areas with a sofa and TV and two fully-equipped kitchens for self-catering with a stove, a fridge, a dishwasher, a microwave and a toaster.


The Student Residence is situated in the suburb of Observatory. This is a lively suburb with many young people, and there are lots of trendy bars and restaurants close to the residence. The MetroRail station is very close.

"I have been enjoying living at the student residence.
The house is divided, there is a part for girls and another
part for boys. We have more privacy, I have my own bedroom."

Natalia from Brazil

"I love staying at the student residence, because I'm
always meeting new friends. My room is always neat and warm
and I have the freedom to cook when I want. Love it here and will
recommend it to my Brazilian friends."

Carolini from Brazil
