CV placements in Residences

 August 2013

Dear Prospective Matie,

We would like to bring it to your attention that placements on the grounds of your resume are not accommodated in the new SU residence placement policy. We kindly request that you do not send any resumes or CV’s to the Residence Head or House Committee Members as it has no bearing on placement of students in residences. Any telephone calls to state your case in this regard will similarly have no effect on placement.

For any enquiries please call the Contact Centre on 021 808 9111 / This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Matie greetings

Communication about Theft


19 July 2013

Dear Student

The University campus as well as the greater Stellenbosch area suffered a series of burglaries during the past June-July holiday.  Despite security measures that were in place, break-ins occurred in containers at Engineering, the Rek&Stat building as well as hostel rooms in Huis Visser, Huis Marais & Irene as well as other sites.

All incidents have been reported to the police and case numbers are available for those who are affected.

Additional guards were immediately employed on building sites and we want to assure you that the safety of our students is of utmost importance to us. Affected students are encouraged to please report any losses to their Residence Service coordinator or Resident Head who are in contact with Campus security and the SAPS.
