dc.description.abstractThis paper uses a unique dataset from a large university in South Africa to analyse the role that neighbourhood and race effects play in determining academic performance. In particular, I am interested in ascertaining whether allocation to a particular residence, or group of residences, affects the academic outcomes of first year students. This paper departs from previous studies of peer interactions in higher education as allocation to residence is non-random in this setting.en_ZA
