Accommodation @US

University residence accommodation on the Stellenbosch and Tygerburg campuses is very popular. Accommodation, especially in Stellenbosch, is rather limited because the Western Cape has a stable, strongly growing economy and is a beautiful part of the country, making it a popular place to work and to retire. And Stellenbosch is one of our country's most popular tourist attractions, which makes the pressure for accommodation even more intense.

About 5200 students can be accommodated in about 27 University residences and other University accommodation on the Stellenbosch Campus. The four residences on the Tygerburg Campus, where the Faculty of Health Sciences is situated, house a further 1000 students. Most Maties studying on these two campuses (more than 26000 students) have to arrange private accommodation in Stellenbosch and its environs.
