Stellenbosch University US Residence Application 2019-2020

By | September 3, 2019

First year residence application and placement process

Excellence enhanced through diversity is an important principle in the University’s residence placement policy, and both are continuously considered along with all the other provisions. The University believes that diversity makes a vital contribution to creating excellence among its students. After all, we learn more from those who are different from us than those who are exactly like us. Diversity at university level also prepares students for the South African and international reality. Therefore, we want to create diversity-rich environments in the University’s student communities. In this way, we acknowledge that students are diverse in many respects (not only in terms of ethnicity), which needs to be reflected in the composition of our student communities

With this as a point of departure, the University works according to specific placement categories, as determined in the residence placement policy and the management guidelines. Read more in the pamphlet on first year residence application and placement.

Please take note of the following:

– The University annually receives more than 8 000 applications for approximately 2000 available places for first years in residence. Place in residence is therefore limited and subject to a selection process. This is why we cannot guarantee that you will receive place in your residence or a place in a residence of choice
– 
We aim to promote diversity and to have an even spread of students from diverse backgrounds across all our residences. Therefore, we follow the guidelines in our residence placement policy and will unfortunately be unable to consider any transfers to other residences.

Stellenbosch University Postgraduate Accommodation

You have a number of options in terms of accommodation during your studies.

SU International tries to mediate on students’ behalf and will help you obtain acceptable housing as far as possible.

Remember, admission to an academic programme does not automatically mean that you have secured a place to stay. Like all other SU students, you will need to apply separately for accommodation.
