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.
- Each room has a network point for connecting your own computer to the University’s network, electronic information resources, the Internet and web-based e-learning tools.
- Laundry facilities
- A common “living room” area for socialising, watching TV or just “hanging out”
- All the women’s residences, and some of the men’s, also have a communal and/or private lounge area where visitors can be received and entertained.
- Most of the residences boast lovely courtyards and/or gardens for play and relaxation.

Stellenbosch University Postgraduate Accommodation
You have a number of options in terms of accommodation during your studies. You may stay in a university residence, in rooms or apartments administered by Stellenbosch University International (SU International), or in private housing. 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.
