Charlotte Maxeke House in Summer

A three story building with elegant proportions and wooden shutters at the windows, Charlotte Maxeke House has been a home to students since 1921.

More important than the bricks and mortar, the residence is held together by a rich cultural diversity, lasting friendships and lively personalities that combine to create a unique and rich resonance which forms the real character of Charlotte Maxeke House.


Situated in close proximity to the Library, Eden Grove, the Health Care Centre, the Campus Protection Unit and the Students Union, Charlotte Maxeke is very centrally placed. It accommodates the House Warden and 61 students. On three floors there are 57 single bedrooms with shared ablution facilities, and 2 en-suite double bedrooms.
