Stellenbosch University can accommodate about 6 500 students in approximately 31 university residences and other university accommodation on the Stellenbosch Campus. The five residences on the Tygerberg Campus, where the Faculty of Health Sciences is situated, house a further 1 000 students. Most Maties studying on these two campuses (there are more than 30 000 students in total) make use of private accommodation in Stellenbosch and its environs.

Students who are placed in any one of these residences are under the supervision of a Residential Head. The Residential Head, in turn, is assisted by a house committee. In each residence there​ are also mentors. Mentors are senior students who are appointed in residences and Private Student Organizations (students who live privately) to assist new students with their adjustment to university life. Each new student should have access to a mentor. The mentor already plays an important role during the welcoming period with general assistance regarding university life queries and psychosocial support. Through the mentor, the new students have the opportunity to partake in the Wellness programme of the University, which aims to enhance the wellness of students throughout the year.

Residence facilities

  • Each room has a network point for connecting your own computer to the University's network, electronic information resources, the Internet and web-based e-learning tools.
  • Laundry facilities
  • A common "living room" area for socialising, watching TV or just "hanging out"
  • All the women's residences, and some of the men's, also have a communal and/or private lounge area where visitors can be received and entertained.
  • Most of the residences boast lovely courtyards and/or gardens for play and relaxation.
