1. Application for private student housing accreditation

2. Accredited accommodation

Accreditation is granted based on the information provided on the application form. A site visit will be arranged within the year, if applicable.
There are three accreditation categories (The Student Accommodation Office is in the process of updating these lists)

- Accredited: within the NSFAS capped amount (within a 3km radius, meets additional criteria and falls within the NSFAS fee cap)
- Accredited: exceeding the NSFAS capped amount
​- List of Tygerberg Accredited Accommodation (dwellings around the Faculty of Medicine and Health Science, Tygerberg Campus)

The criteria for accreditation are published in the Stellenbosch University Guidelines for Off-campus Private Student Housing Accreditation 2023. 

Please take note of the following:
- It remains the landlord's responsibility to ensure that the accommodation is up to standard and complies with the guidelines throughout the year.
- It remains the student's responsibility to ensure that they understand the content of the lease agreement, the cost of accommodation, and their obligations as a lessee in terms of the lease agreement. The lease agreement is between the student and the landlord. SU is not a party to the agreement.
- Finally, it remains the prerogative of the student to choose suitable off-campus private housing.

Please direct all queries to privateaccomm@sun.ac.za.
