Dear prospective Matie
 
We are excited to host you on Saturday 7 May 2022 for the second of three on-campus open days! This event will cover three faculties on Stellenbosch campus – Arts and Social Sciences, Education and Theology.
 
What makes the Stellenbosch University (SU) Open Day 2022 different from previous open days? 

  • Apart from the fact that this will be our first opportunity to host prospective Maties and their parents on campus since our last in-person event in 2020, we have also turned our open day into a three-day event series, combined with an open-day website.
     
  • The on-campus activities will give prospective Maties a chance to view their faculty buildings, explore exciting topics and get a sense of what studying at SU entails.
     
  • Our open-day website will remain active until 31 July, when undergraduate study applications close. The site provides answers to any general questions you may have. 

Where can I access the programmes for the day?
 
Faculty programmes can be accessed via this link:

STELLENBOSCH UNIVERSITY ON-CAMPUS OPEN-DAY SERIES (sun.ac.za)
 
How do I arrange universal access?
 
We'll gladly provide universal access to guests with mobility challenges who need parking close to faculty venues. Please inform us ahead of time by sending an email to info@sun.ac.za.
 
How do the tickets work? 

  • Please print your tickets prior to arrival or save them as screenshots on your mobile device to allow for easy access. (We have made updates to the ticketing system and would advise that you redownload it.)
     
  • If you have already downloaded your ticket, but have since misplaced it, you can download it again. Go to the Quicket login (www.quicket.co.za) and enter your email address (the one you entered under “Buyer information" on the checkout page) and password. If you're not sure about your password, click on “Forgot my password" to reset the link. Follow the steps under this link: https://help.quicket.com/portal/en/kb/articles/i-can-t-find-or-print-my-tickets.
     
  • Follow this link to book tickets for additional sessions on the day: Book tickets for STELLENBOSCH UNIVERSITY ON-CAMPUS OPEN-DAY SERIES (quicket.co.za). Remember, bookings close at the start of the session.
     
  • PLEASE cancel any tickets you will not be using well in advance to afford other guests the opportunity to attend the session.
     
  • We kindly remind guests that tickets are limited to one prospective student and one accompanying parent per family. 

What can I expect on the day?
 
Please take some time to prepare for your arrival on campus. Keep in mind the following important information:
 
Covid-19 screening/protocols

  • We encourage guests to arrive at least 15 minutes before their faculty sessions start. This will allow enough time for ticket screening, sanitising, and moving to the venues.
     
  • Complete the online pre-screening on Quicket before arriving for your session. (It will be an email that you receive 24hours prior to the event.)
     
  • Please complete the screening for each ticket you have selected. (In this way, we'll be able to keep the event Covid-19-compliant.)
     
  • Please do not attend your session if you are experiencing any Covid-19 symptoms.  
     
  • We will try to save some seats in the back for late arrivals to minimise disruption.  
     
  • SU Covid protocols require that guests sanitise before/upon entering the venue, wear their masks while indoors, and adhere to social distancing both inside and outside buildings.

Parking

  • All the security booms at on-campus parking areas will be lifted (as they usually are on a Saturday), so you should be able to find central parking. There are various areas in Victoria -, Ryneveld- and Bosmanstreet. You will also find ample parking behind the Faculty of Engineering, accessible from Bosman Street (which is within walking distance of all the other faculties in Stellenbosch).
     
  • To be safe, do not leave any valuables inside your vehicle in plain sight of passers-by.
     
  • Please do not park on sidewalks or in non-designated parking areas, as this might attract a fine from municipal law enforcement. 

Is there anything else I shouldn't miss out on?
 
Maties village is being set up in Ryneveld Street (in front of Admin A) 

  • Meet the people, feel the vibe and get some Maties apparel to motivate you on your journey. You will find a mobile Maties Shop; opportunity to talk to student ambassadors and take some selfies.
     
  • Take event selfies and share it by tagging us on Facebook @stellenboschuniversity and Instagram @stellenboschuni using the #whoyoubecome - you can win a Maties hamper!

Please take note:

  • The various open-day activities will be photographed/captured on video. The photographer/videographer will identify themselves to you and may require you to complete a consent form.
