Hatfield Community provides welcoming and secure accommodation for students. We are a vibrant community and are ideally situated for the many colleges in the area, as well as University of Pretoria. We provide an environment where students can make friends, excel in their studies and grow spiritually.
HATFIELD COMMUNITY AND COVID-19
As a Community Village we are aware the effect the Covid-19 virus has on our students. We have taken the necessary precautions to secure the safety of those staying in our houses.
We are open for queries and applications. Take note our staff are working remotely, so response times may vary.
Established in 2005, we have four student houses in Pretoria East near Menlyn; all on the property of Hatfield Christian Church. Each house is fully equipped for comfortable student living and all necessary amenities are provided. Security is a priority with palisade and electric fencing, 24- hour security guards and coded gates to ensure limited access. The houses are run by house leaders, together with the students. Most rooms provide shared accommodation with a few private rooms, and allocations are made on a first come, first served basis. The church has a vibrant young adults ministry that caters specifically for students, for those who would like to be involved.
