The CEO of the Waterford Hotel Group, Mr. Len Wolman, is a great partner and supporter of the School.  He is an STH Golden Circle Alumnus Award winner and in 2020 was awarded the UJ Alumni Dignitas Award in recognition of achieving excellence in his profession.

Design Café

Adjoining the Faculty of Art Design and Architecture (FADA), the Design Café is a well placed.

 A hive of student creative energy and zest, the café is known for its designer coffees of origin.  Grab a cuppa on the go, or sit back and enjoy your hot beverage with a light sandwich or snack

Purchase your pack of specialty coffee

Whether you are an aficionado or someone who really enjoys their coffee, you also have a chance to engage the team on the various coffee varieties and even purchase a special blend Asali to prepare and enjoy in the comfort of your home

In recognizing that the majority of smallholder coffee farmers in the African continent are kept poverty stricken due to a lack of market access and production resources. The specialty coffee beans are ethically sourced through various partnerships from country of origin, traceable to the farms and cooperatives that grow them. This provides for a much more sustainable system of production for the farmers in the respective regions.
