Vergeet-My-Nie | Studies | NWU | North-West University


Vergeet-My-Nie women's residence (VMN) has been a proud part of student life at the NWU Potchefstroom campus since 1973 and has since then stood out above the rest. Vergeet-My-Nie is our home away from home, a place where we can be ourselves and where we make friends and memories that will last a lifetime. Here we grow together, laugh together and cry together and in this process we forge close ties with each other. Vergeet-My-Nie's motto is: "Go for Gold for Him" and each resident is hereby encouraged to express her talents and pursue her dreams. Our logo is the famous VMN flower called Kasparus. Kasparus winks at every resident and visitor who enters her doorstep. The flower is also synonymous with the culture of kindness and caring we grow in the residence.

Our Vision

  • Vergeet-My-Nie is a residence that strives to teach its residents to live a balanced student life. Each resident gives her best and in the process we make lifelong friends as well as learn important life lessons.
  • Vergeet-My-Nie wants to send independent women, who know who they are and what they want to achieve, out into the world.

Our Mission

Our mission is forget-me-not, forget-HIM-not" and is actively experienced, proclaimed and promoted by maintaining the following core values:

The residence, as a unit, is a model of mature and balanced student spirit, sense of style, hospitality and a campus home for women in the true sense of the word.

Here you can be yourself, find yourself and live your student life to the full. Every challenge is an opportunity for a VMN lady to go for gold. Vergeet-My-Nie isn't just a place to stay; it is a way of life.
