Student Societies
Welcome to Stellenbosch University



The Societies Council consists of the chairpersons of all registered societies on campus, and together form a body of support and shared ideals. Societies play a hugely important role on campus and make a great contribution to the student's lives on campus. Societies provide an environment where students can meet new people that share similar interests or ideas and provide a "home away from home". Societies are a place to make friends for life and help create a balanced student lifestyle.
