History of Centenary

Centenary House was opened in 2004, the Rhodes centennial year. The residence was named to mark that auspicious occasion in the life of the university. Rhodes University has shaped both the Eastern Cape and many of the men and women who have played a role in the development of South Africa. It was felt that naming the residence ‘Centenary’ honoured that legacy.

Centenary House is an environment for high-spirited, ingenious, quick witted and judicious people who aim to strive academically, in the community and on the sports fields. Centenary House has established a reputation for hard work and having fun. Regular community engagement activities, social functions, invited guest’s speakers and residence activities ensure that Centenary House is a fantastic place to live at Rhodes University.
