A PSO is a private student organisation. A “private student” is a student who does not live in a university residence, but rather in a flat or at home or any other form of private accommodation. All PSOs and residences are then grouped in clusters according to location. There are 7 clusters in total and Equité forms part of the AmaMaties Cluster. Equité PSO was formed in 2009 and is one that continuously works on growth and development .
