Ons dubbelverdieping gebou omhein deur sekuriteitsheining, beskik oor 45 enkel en 6 dubbel, netjies en goed toegeruste kamers, asook genoegsame badkamers en kombuisies wat gedeel word deur die studente.

 

Ons keuring vind deurlopend plaas, maar word in Augustus van elke jaar gefinaliseer waarna die koste van akkommodasie aan u voorsien sal word.

 

Die akkommodasie fooie sluit die volgende dienste en voordele vir u in om ‘n aangename verblyf te verseker:

 

Rendezvous

 

Dit is ons gemeenskaplike leef-area wat toegerus is met DSTV, stoof, mikrogolf, ketel, broodrooster, sonfilter gordyne en ‘n gesellige atmosfeer.  Dit is waar studente soms saam kuier, studeer, eet, vergaderings en funksies hou.

 

Kombuisie

Kitchenette

 

One berei nie kos voor in ons kamers nie, maar gebruik of die Rendezvous, of ons 4 kombuise/kitchenettes wat voldoende toegerus is met stowe, mikrogolfoonde, ketels, roosters en 2 plaat stofies.

Studente is self verantwoordelik vir die volgende items:

Vir jou kamer benodig jy:-

Klein Yskas. (± 1.45m hoog en .05m breed met ‘n redelike vries ruimte)

Ketel, waaier, vullis sakkies vir vullisblikkie asook eie vullisblikkie,

Bedlampie en jou eie toiletpapier.

‘n los mat kan ook ‘n lekker atmosfeer skep.

Vir almal se veiligheid en gereif word verkoelers (Air Conditioners), mikrogolfoonde, verwarmers en TV’s nie in die kamers toegelaat nie.

 

Om in die kombuisie te gebruik:-

Eikenhof vorm deel van die Universiteit van Stellenbosch se onderskeie PSO groepe wat sodoende deelneem aan alle Universiteitsbedrywighede, oriënteringsweek, sportspanne, ens.

 

Eerstejaar studente van Eikenhof Hostel word gedurende die oriënteringsweek soggens deur die Huiskomitee na die onderskeie PSO’s  vergesel vir o.a  besoeke aan die verskillende fakulteite, registrasie, bekendstelling aan die universiteit asook die akademiese prosedures van die universiteit, en in-skakeling met ander koshuise.

 

Saans word byeenkomste in Eikenhof Hostel gehou om koshuisreëls, die huiskomitee en medestudente beter te leer ken. Dit is ‘n baie vol program, maar aan die einde van die week stem almal saam dat dit die moeite werd was.

 

Eikenhof verskaf nie etes nie, ons het wel ‘n kontrak met ‘n Spysenieringsmaatskappy wat onafhanklik van die koshuis vir ons gesonde, gebalanseerde voedsel met voorkeure (bv Diabetes, ens) daagliks aflewer.  Indien u gekeur word, sal hierdie volledige inligting later aan u deurgegee word.

 

Ons is baie trots op die kultuur van meelewing en kameraadskap wat oor baie jare in Eikenhof gevestig is en juis daarom is ons studente volwaardige en volwasse dames in die ware sin van die woord.
