This residence is located on the site of the old Afrikaans Pretoria East Primary School (Laerskool Pretoria Oos). Constructed in the early 1900s, the building was purchased by the University in 1954 and renovated and transformed into a women’s residence called Aanhou Wen (Keep Winning). It was later renamed Roosmaryn and became a first-year annex to the women’s residence Klaradyn. The building is constructed from Pretoria red brick and is similar to other schools built in the area, such as Pretoria Boys and Girls High and Afrikaans Hoër Seuns- and Meisieskool.
