The Smuts Dining Hall is mostly reserved for prestigious occasions such as Vice Chancellor Events and Academic Dinners. As such, Smutsmen enjoy their meals at their sister residence, in the Fuller Hall dining hall.

Most Smutsmen, past and present, will attest to the fact that dining hall is a central part of the residence experience. More than a place to eat, the dining hall is a social hub and plays host to a myriad of interesting and stimulating conversations.  Over the years it has seen the creation of friendships, the inception of business ideas and partnerships, and the making of many cherished memories which future Smutsmen can look forward to.

As a first tier catering residence, catered for by C3 Food Services, our residents select between a variety of meal options with a full breakfast, lunch and dinner being on offer, seven days a week. A typical day of meals includes a breakfast with two hot options and various cold options (including yogurts, juices and a variety of cereals) and a lunch and dinner with two hot options and a vegetarian option to choose from, with toasted sandwiches or juices and yogurts as extra “cold option” alternatives.
