About Osler

Osler is a private student organisation (PSO) that is comprised of all Tygerberg students who live privately i.e. do not live in one of the residences on Tygerberg campus. This student community is composed of over 1000 students studying in the various health sciences degree programs offered at Stellenbosch University. We aspire towards being a society that is driven by its values and prides itself in embodying the vision we have for Osler. 

Osler's vision and mission

Osler’s serves as a community away from one’s native community. We create a community where our members feel seen, represented, empowered and driven to grow as individuals. We believe in developing future leaders and laying the groundwork to create the world we wish to see.

Mentorship offered by Osler

Our Osler Mentors will be there to support and help you throughout your journey as a first-year. They will be there for you when you need to talk, when you have questions or when you just need a friend.

We are very proud of the growth and development that the Osler Mentor Program has made over the past few years and the Mentors are seen as an extension of the Osler House Committee which has proven to be a significant asset to Osler as a whole. Osler strives to create a community amongst students and the Mentors enhance this vision immensely.
