Welcome To Huis ten Bosch

Huis ten Bosch is een van die kleiner dames koshuise op die Stellenbosch kampus, maar die koshuis se naam dans al vir jare op almal se lippe. Ons staan bekend as die “Dames van Vuur” vanweë die brand wat in 1983 plaasgevind het, maar die woorde het ‘n baie dieper betekenis die afgelope jare gekry. Die dames pak alles aan met dieselfde warm passie vir die lewe as die vlamme wat soveel verwoesting gesaai het. Huis ten Bosch het ‘n unieke geskiedenis en is die derde oudste damekoshuis op kampus. Die dames van Huis ten Bosch is werklik aan die brand en het passie en vuur op alle vlakke van hulle lewe.


Huis ten Bosch is one of the the smaller ladies’ residences on the Stellenbosch campus, but the residence’s name has been on everyone’s lips for years. We are known as the “Women of Fire” as a result of the fire that occurred in 1983, but the words have acquired a deeper meaning over the years. With a fiery passion for life, the ladies take on everything much like the flames of the fire that had such a devastating effect.
