Firmly rooted in the NWU student life, the Hopeville Residence Community is brimming with dynamic and passionate ladies. We have 220 ladies, each contributing uniquely to our shared identity as a residence community.

At Hopeville, we value and encourage each student’s unique identity and celebrate each student’s diversity. This allows us to create a shared space where lifelong bonds are forged and cherished. Sisterhood is a big part of the Hopeville Residence Community. At Hopeville, you will belong to a group of close friends who will cherish and support you in all facets of your student life.

It will inspire you to excel and be all that you can be. We believe that our success as a residence community is measured by your success as a well-balanced and happy student. Integral to this is our belief that each unique identity must be cherished, as diversity is our strength. This is reflected in our motto: “The Strength in Unity, Purpose in Diversity.” The contribution of each individual student leads to our success as a unified residence community. So come to Hopeville, where you will belong to a sisterhood that will cherish you for being you.
