​Students who would like to propose a new name for the Wilcocks building are reminded that the closing date for nominations is Wednesday 26 August 2020.

Stellenbosch University (SU) staff, students and members of the community (as represented in the structures with membership on Stellenbosch University's Institutional Forum) have the opportunity to propose a new name for the currently named RW Wilcocks Building.

The University acknowledges that visual symbols evoke different emotions and experiences amongst people, especially in a diversified and historically divided country like South Africa. It is our fervent hope that this long-anticipated renaming process of this prominent building, that also marks the entrance to the Stellenbosch campus, will allow for broad participation towards reflecting the journey of this institution and the surrounding community.

Guidelines for the nominations and naming process, as well as the nomination form are available on the SU website. Completed nomination forms should reach no later than Wednesday 26 August 2020. ​
