Accreditation is done based on the information provided on an application form and a site visit will be arranged as soon as COVID-regulations allow. 

There are three accreditation categories:

1. NSFAS accreditation
(4 beds or more, within 3 km from campus, within the NSFAS fee caps and meets the additional NSFAS criteria)

2. NSFAS single accommodation accreditation (3 beds or less, within 3 km from campus, within the NSFAS meets the additional NSFAS criteria)

3. SU accreditation (4 beds or more and meets SU accreditation criteria)
List of SU accredited accommodation

Please note that NSFAS-students will also be able to seek placement in SU accredited accommodation, but will be responsible for any rental shortfall that is payable to the landlord. 

The criteria for accreditation is published in the Stellenbosch University Guidelines for Off-campus Private Student Housing Accreditation in 2020 (2021 intake) . 

Please take note of the following:

  1. It remains the responsibility of the landlord to ensure that the accommodation is up to standard and complies with the guidelines throughout the year.
  2. It also remains the responsibility of the student to ensure that they understand the content of the lease agreement, the cost of accommodation and their obligations as a lessee in terms thereof. The lease agreement is between the student and the landlord.  SU is not a party to the agreement.
  3. And finally, it remains the prerogative of the student to choose suitable off-campus private housing.
