Welcome to our prospective students page. Goldfields is the oldest mixed gender, mixed race koshuis at the University of Stellenbosch and in fact in South Africa. This is a fact we are very proud of and one that we feel puts us as a res at the forefront of all residences in South Africa. The Goldfields experience is a very unique one, first year Goldies learn to become brothers and sisters in the diverse family that is Goldfields. We at Goldfields believe in living a balanced lifestyle and thus encourage all our students to focus on their academics but at the same time to take part in extra-mural activities such as sport or culture. It is our vision to send out balanced Goldies into the world as we feel that this better prepares them for life. We invite you to have a look at the various letters below, photos and the first year booklet if you scroll down on this page.
