Student Affairs
Welcome to Stellenbosch University


​​​​​​​​Welcome to the Division of Student Affairs​​


The Division of Student Affairs (DSA) was established to lend support in a systemic-holistic manner mainly, but not exclusively, to students; to encourage related divisions and entities to function in a more integrated way and to optimise coherent cooperation with all stakeholders at Stellenbosch University (SU), especially the students and faculties. 

​​​The DSA, managed by the Senior Director Dr Birgit Schreiber, comprises of three centres ​with the aim of handling and solving any enquiry, problem or issue as quickly as possible​. These centres are: The Centre for Student Comm​​​​​​unities (CSC), directed by Mr Pieter Kloppers, The Centre for Student Counselling and Development (CSCD), directed by Dr Munita Dunn-Coetzee, and The Centre for Student Leadership and Structures (CSLS), directed by Ms Tonia Overmeyer.
