Service Catalogue > Identity & Access Management > Usernames


A unique username is allocated to each person and gives you access to electronic resources, e-mail and internet at Stellenbosch University. Student usernames are automatically allocated on enrolment, but staff usernames require an application process.


All new staff members should contact their departmental secretary to complete the application for this service.
The steps are as follow: 
1.       The role must be confirmed as the user should already have a US Number assigned to them.  E-mail HR for role information.​
2.       If the user already has a role and US number please proceed to step 3 – if not, you will have already received the correct procedure from your communication with HR to have them created.
3.       Follow this LINK to create a username for the new staff. 
4.       After the username has been created please log a call for a profile setup on the PC/Laptop they will be using.


Pensioners can reactivate online or at the cashiers at Administration A on Stellenbosch campus or at Tygerberg cashiers.

Cashiers at Admin A on Stellenbosch campus or cashiers on Tygerberg campus.
