Campus Experience

Stellenbosch University has five campuses spread across the Western Cape. Each campus provides students with access to world-class learning, teaching, research and living environments.

Our campuses

Stellenbosch Main Campus

Located in the historical, oak-lined streets of Stellenbosch, 50 km from Cape Town, this is the oldest and largest of SU’s campuses. It houses the administrative nerve centre, eight of its 10 academic faculties, two concert halls, 30 student residences, the Botanical Gardens and the Danie Craven sports stadium, among many other facilities.

Tygerberg Campus

This campus is home to SU’s Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and encompasses Tygerberg Academic Hospital. The campus is located in Bellville in the northern suburbs of Cape Town, about 20 km from Cape Town. In addition to Tygerberg Academic Hospital, it features a clinical building, laboratories, medical library, skills laboratory and five student residences.

Bellville Park Campus

This campus houses the University’s Graduate School of Business and is situated in Tyger Valley, midway between Stellenbosch and the centre of Cape Town. Built on a hill with an impressive view, the campus is also home to the University’s Part-time Studies Division and Small Business Academy, which offers business education to small enterprises.

Worcester Campus, Ukwanda Rural Clinical School

This is the newest and smallest of the five campuses, to give medical and healthcare students exposure to healthcare challenges and conditions in rural South Africa. Situated about 80 km from Stellenbosch, the campus was completed in 2012 and is next door to Worcester Regional Hospital and a specialist tuberculosis facility.

Saldanha Campus

Located on the West Coast, about 150 km from Cape Town and 170 km from Stellenbosch, Saldanha is the most far-flung of SU’s five campuses. It houses the Faculty of Military Science, which in turn forms part of the South African Military Academy and has ultra-modern teaching and residence facilities for future military leaders.
