Change the world

Melodi Residence


On behalf of the Melodi Residence Managment and House Committee 2019, I would like to welcome you to your new home!

My name is Noluthando Ncokazi, chairperson of the Melodi house Committee 2019 and I am currently studying towards a degree in Education (FET).

Melodi residence is a house that strives towards encouring our beautiful ladies to not only be independent , but also encourages their physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing. Our residence also aims for excellence by nuturing and guiding individuals to reach their full potential and be the best that they can be. 

Melodi residence is not just your new home, but it is a place for you to grow as an individual and for you to be able to align yourself with the values of the university (Ubuntu, Intergrity, Academic Excellence, Respect for the Environment, Diversity and Responsibility) and that of the house being Sisterhood. 

The House Committee Structure, together with the assistance of the academic mentors, are prepared to support you throughout the transformation process as well as your journey as a first year, as it is a huge transisition form high school to university. Your stay here must be taken as an opportunity not only to become an academic , but a holistically well-rounded individual who will have an impact on communities and become a selfless leader who will have the courage to empower others to be leaders and not just followers.

Melodi Residence houses beautiful young ladies who come from diverse backgrounds and in order for us to bond as sisters, we need to care for, respect, love, support and accept one another for who we are. It is vital that as a young lady that you know who you are and stay true to yourself.
