Listen, Live & Learn initiative (LLL)

Listen, Live & Learn (LLL) is a residential experience with a difference. Students wishing to be accommodated at this house undergo a detailed selection process.

Placements in an LLL house are done in a way that makes the most out of diversity in terms of race, gender, nationality & faculty of study. The idea is to encourage diversity of thoughts, experiences & perspectives.

Each house has a theme aim at encouraging residents to engage with each other and their house guide (a member of staff with expertise/interest in the chosen theme), throughout the year.

Mathew Smorenburg, Coordinator of LLL will be at Neelsie on Thursday morning to talk to Kieno Kammies about this unique form of students accommodation offered by Stellenbosch University.
