Accomodation at the University of Stellenbosch
See the list below for the Student residences at Stellenbosch University. Students who are placed in any one of these residences are placed under the supervision of the warden concerned, who in turn shall be assisted by a number of senior students acting as advisors. Residents’ advisors assist students with a variety of needs, monitor facility security and maintenance, and plan numerous educational and social programmes for students.
University houses (more informally known as “student houses”) provide housing to mainly final year or post-graduate students who wish to be more independent, but still want to stay within the campus grounds. University flats provide mixed-gender accommodation for mostly post-graduate and/or international students.
Students who are not accepted in university housing have the option to board either in a private house or flat. Every student in private lodgings is required to become a member of the Private Students’ Organization (PSO) and pay a membership fee. The PSO serves students, who do not live in University housing, to allow them a similar social structure to that enjoyed by “res” students.
