Parking is limited, both on the Stellenbosch and the Tygerberg campus. Instead of bringing your own vehicle to campus, rather make use of one of the following:


  • Rent a Matie bike or bring your own bicycle to campus.
  • Register your bicycle free of charge with Campus Security, and you'll get access to safe bicycle sheds.  Registering will also help security to reunite you and your bike if it is stolen and found.

  • Why use your own transport if you can club together?  Join Findalift, a free, private on-line service providing Maties with safe lift opportunities. Register on Findalift's​ website and find a lift with someone travelling the same route as you.
