Updated Residence Placement information
The residence Metanoia, which is situated in the Rubix cluster, is certified to serve halaal meals in their dining hall. All residence students who wish to eat halaal – whether they stay in Metanoia or another residence – may use their student cards to book here and eat on their regular meal quotas. Private students in the Rubix cluster (Venustia and Pieke) may also make use of Metanoia's halaal meals by simply depositing cash into their meal quotas beforehand. Please visit www.maties.com and click on "Student fees", where we explain how to do this.
The deli in House Russel Botman also serves halaal takeaways. This convenient service is available to all students in the Wimbledon cluster (Eendrag, Irene, Sonop and Helshoogte residences and the private wards Aristea and Vesta). Residence students from the cluster eat on their meal quotas on their student accounts, while private students again simply deposit cash into their quotas beforehand (as explained on www.maties.com).
The Student Centre (the Neelsie) already has one supplier who prepares halaal meals, with a second supplier expected to start operating early in 2015. Private students may buy these meals cash, or deposit money into their meal quotas beforehand in order to swipe their student cards. Although residence students cannot use their meal quotas in the Student Centre, they are welcome to pay cash for a meal at any stage.
