Student Accommodation

The YW boasts a homely and family-like atmosphere where all student residents can experience a happy and stable environment.  Of importance to us is that student residents show considerate behavior to one another.  We, in turn, treat the young ladies as “young responsible adults” in order to help prepare the students to face the world with maturity.

Main HouseWhere we are

Here in Cape Town we can accommodate up to 41 young women in our villa-style house.  As we are situated at the foot of Table Mountain we are proud of our scenic and peaceful surroundings.  It is an ideal location for students to enjoy focused studying and safe living.  Our location is in close proximity to many of the student learning establishments in Cape Town and surrounding areas and has easy access to public transport.

Our focus group

Accommodation is offered to young women between the ages of 18 and 25.  Our residents come from all over Africa to stay at The YW whilst they are studying or in their first few years of working.  The accommodation is offered for an annual 10 month period, with many reapplying to stay for another year or more.  Each year our contracts are signed for a period of 10 months (1 February to 30 November).

Our aim is to provide safe, value for money accommodation whilst demonstrating care and support and showing love, based on Christian principles.  We also endeavor to offer opportunities for young women to enhance their personal growth.

Breakfast and dinner are provided Monday to Saturday and breakfast and lunch on a Sunday.  There is a communal lounge and diningroom, a computer room and self-service laundry facilities.


A life coach is employed to interact with the young ladies once a week.  This gives students a chance to share and seek guidance from an experienced mentor.

Our young ladies are encouraged to become involved in outreach projects.

It’s all here at The YW Cape Town ….
