Keeping our 100-year old tradition alive

Successive generations of Rhodians bear testimony to the power and essence of the Rhodes residential system. Not only does 'res' provide the perfect environment for academic nurturing, friendships forged over late night coffee in one of our halls often last a lifetime.

With the growth in student numbers – nearly 1 400 new undergraduates were enrolled this year which comes with an urgent need to build more residences. Our goal is to accommodate at least 55% of our students and all first years in res.

Supporting this project is a wonderful way for Old Rhodians to remember and celebrate the special times they themselves experienced in res.

Donations of any amount towards new residences are deeply appreciated. Naming rights and other forms of recognition are available to those making substantial contributions.
