​​​​​​​​​​What is the SRC?

The Students' Representative Council (SRC) is the highest representative structure for students at Stellenbosch University (SU) as recognised by the SU Statute​ and governed by the Stellenbosch Student Constitution. The SRC fulfils its representative and organizational mandate through various portfolios allocated to a team of elected SRC members [16​ with voting rights] and appointed SRC managers.


​​How does the SRC represent you?


 The SRC's structural composition facilitates the representation of all students. With the Tygerberg Student Council Chairperson and the Military Academy Student Captain both serving as ex-officio members, students from Tygerberg and Saldanha campuses are also represented at the highest level of SU management. Furthermore, three statutory bodies (Academic Affairs Council, Prim Committee and Societies Council​) ensure that important structures and interests are heard at the SRC. The three bodies are in turn made up of representatives from all faculties, houses (Residences and Private Student Organizations) and societies.

According to the Student Constitution, the SRC can also appoint between 2 and 10 managers in order to facilitate administrative portfolios. The managers are regarded as full SRC members without voting rights in SRC meetings (as they have not been elected by campus, but appointed by the SRC). The managers for 2019/2020 are as follows:
