SU Student Accommodation

Stellenbosch University can accommodate about 6500 students in approximately 31 university residences and other university accommodations on the Stellenbosch Campus. The five residences on the Tygerberg Campus, where the Faculty of Health Sciences is situated, house a further 1,000 students. Most Maties studying on these two campuses (more than 30,000 students in total) use private accommodation in Stellenbosch and its environs.

Students who are placed in any one of these residences are under the supervision of a Residential Head. The Residential Head, in turn, is assisted by a house committee. In each residence, there are also mentors. Mentors are senior students appointed in residences and Private Student Organizations (students who live privately) to assist new students with adjusting to university life. Each new student should have access to a mentor. The mentor already plays an important role during the welcoming period with general assistance regarding university life queries and psychosocial support. Through the mentor, the new students have the opportunity to partake in the Wellness programme of the University, which aims to enhance the wellness of students throughout the year.
