Welcome to Stanley Kidd House

Please feel free to navigate around the site using the links in the top navigation bar. We also have a private Stanley Kidd House facebook page which the guys use to keep in contact with each other and to inform the residents of upcoming sporting or social events. If you have any questions or comments, please send them to the house warden.

The House Today

Stanley Kidd is proud to be part of the Nelson Mandela Hall. We currently have 51 students in two different buildings within the Hall grounds. These buildings are named Stanley Kidd Main House and Stanley Kidd Annexe 1. A picture of the main house can be seen in the picture to the right. The residence consists of 51 single rooms (31 in Main House and 20 in the Annexe). Each building has complete wifi coverage, allowing students with their own computers to connect to the internet. There is also a communal web kiosk in the foyer of the main house, as well as a res printer.

The house has 2 common rooms with DSTV, a table tennis table, a pool table and a social bar. The common rooms are situated in an exterior building (with ablution facilities and a braai area), which allows the students to unwind on evenings, weekends or during big sporting matches without disturbing those who wish to have an early night in or are working in their rooms.

The Men of Stanley Kidd House

As with all the residences in campus, it is the people that make the residence more than the building itself. The men in Stanley Kidd live by a simple rule of respecting themselves and respecting those around them. Many students often refer to the other students in res being more like brothers than neighbours. There are plenty of activities through out the year to keep the students entertained, such as res braai's, inter-res sports, internal league soccer, etc.
