Welcome to Dingemans House

Congratulations on being accepted to Rhodes University. You will soon discover that you are a part of a very privileged few and hopefully learn how to use this position for the betterment of society. After all Rhodes is where leaders learn.

Dingemans House is one of four female residences forming Hobson Hall. We are a small community of approximately 260 girls which makes it really easy to get to know other girls in your Hall and not only in your residence. Your Warden, Mrs Tracey Chambers, the Sub-wardens, the Head Student and the House Committee would like to give you a warm welcome to your new home. We the house committee will ensure that you settle in as quickly and as comfortably as possible. We will be there upon your arrival for Orientation and will be ready to introduce you to Rhodes University. Our main responsibility is to make you feel safe and comfortable and that none of your time is occupied with ideas of home sickness. We will offer you a sisterly supportive environment so that you and your parents have peace of mind as you transition from your old school and home to our beautiful campus.   

Each Dingemans lady has their own room, fully furnished and equipped with a hand basin and three large mirrors. A bathroom, shower and toilets are shared by eight girls; we pride our selves in keeping these spaces neat and tidy. Dingemans is the only residence at Rhodes University with a flat roof, a venue used often for sunset viewing, chilling, sun-tanning and socialising. The residence accommodates 76 females all in single bedrooms. There are two common rooms, kitchen and laundry.  The kitchen has a microwave and two fridges but NO COOKING facilities are available or allowed.

Dingemans is a part of lower campus and is near the library, computer laboratories, most lecture venues, Eden Grove and the Steve Bhiko Union buildings (the swimming pool is found here). Campus Protection and the Sanatorium are right on our doorstep.
