Home-from-home accommodation for mature students in Cape Town.
STUDENT life can be stressful...
At 4 Green Doors we aim to provide safe, quiet, and comfortable accommodation for mature students and working professionals who want a place to call home.
We want you to feel comfortable so you can focus on the things that matter!
Why 4 green doors?
The properties are looked after by our friendly property manager, handyman and housekeepers who have all been with us for years.
4 Green Doors was founded in 2012 by the Bate family. It was inspired by the founders' two daughters who studied at UCT and wanted to live somewhere like home.
What makes us different?
We care! You aren’t just another tenant paying the rent. Every year starts off with socials in all the properties so that students get a chance to meet their new housemates and we can explain how everything works. Pizzas are always delivered from Ferdinandos quite simply the best pizza restaurant in Cape Town who are huge community players and are right on our doorstep.
We also care deeply about the planet and recycling is collected once a week by a small local company. Nothing beats nature to create a tranquil environment and plants are an important feature in all our properties.
Don’t take our word for it...

“I have loved staying at Queen Street! It has truly become a home to me, more than you can imagine. I’ve only once in my life before lived at the same place for four years, so Queen Street is special to me”
Postdoc in Linguistics

Masters in Development Studies
“28 Rochester was a wonderful home in Cape Town. The staff were great and cheerfully looked after all our needs. The rooms are spacious and very light - a great place to study or work from home. The house’s location and amenities such as WiFi, a fitted kitchen and fully kitted out laundry room make it an excellent accommodation choice for the student and busy professional alike. Highly recommended!"
“When I arrived from Kenya I received fantastic hospitality and I really appreciated the social to get to know my housemates and the 4 Green Doors team. Out of all the digs I have stayed in, 24 Rochester is the house where I lived in comfort and was offered support all year round. I highly recommend 4 Green Doors to any student looking for a home while studying in Cape Town”
