Welcome to Smuts Hall Residence. The most prestigious and well respected male’s residence in Africa. Smuts Hall was established in 1928 and was named after General Jan Smuts and provides housing for around 240 students each year.

Ever since its establishment, the residence has prided itself in developing future leaders for both South Africa and the world.

This has been achieved through cultural integration amongst the residence, creating an environment for students to encourage one another to participate in residence and university activities and extra murals.

The latest addition to the Freshmen Program is that of the Neville Isdell Leadership weekend.

The Freshmen, coupled with senior Smutsmen in the residence embark on a weekend in the beautiful Grabouw farmlands to build future networks and enhance their leadership skills
working together in groups to achieve the integration and involvement Smuts Hall Residence prides itself on for over 80 years now.
