We find love in surprising places.

Remember your first day on campus?

You were scared, nervous, excited. You’ve spent some of the best years of your life here, in your Faculty, in your res. And, while those precious memories linger on, some of the relationships you formed during your time at SU remains to this day.

Friendship is really the pinnacle of love. Love changes us.

It helps us cross bridges and discover parts about ourselves that we never knew existed.

Your time at SU has helped you discover that when you love something, you give yourself to it. A natural exchange takes place, growth is facilitated, you become more of who you’re destined to be.

Stellenbosch University has been producing global shapers for almost 100 years. We want to honour and celebrate all the reasons to love SU with the #SU99 campaign.

Do you have old student photos that you would love to share with us online? Share your photos and memories of the SU people and places you love and tag us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, using the hashtag #SU99.

You stand in line to win 1 of 9 SU alumni hampers over nine weeks.

Help us raise R99 999 in 99 days

With almost half of all SU students needing some form of financial assistance, we’re also trying to raise R99 999 in 99 days as part of the #SU99 campaign. There are branded alumni boxes situated all around campus to encourage staff and students to support future Maties.

If you would like to support the campaign, you can easily make your payment online by clicking on this link:

You can also make use of SnapScan by simply scanning the SnapScan QR code and indicate the amount that you would like to donate.

You can support the #SU99 bursary campaign further by adding Stellenbosch University as a beneficiary on your MySchool profile. Simply update your beneficiary details here:

Giving to Stellenbosch University means that you will help a student get the textbook that he/she need for that important exam, to eat three meals a day so that they can focus on their academics and to have a safe place to sleep at night.
