Stellenbosch University Homecoming Weekend 2022


Our Maties Homecoming weekend for alumni will be taking place from Thursday, 8 September to Saturday, 10 September 2022 on our picturesque Stellenbosch campus. After two years of lockdown, this year’s event promises to be one for the books. 


As usual, we have planned various tailormade events for our alumni. This is your chance to reconnect with old friends, relive your student days and participate in a range of fun and exciting activities. 


Expect networking events; campus tours; a business breakfast; sporting activities and socials. No fewer than 11 residences will also host birthday reunions over the weekend, and eight first-year reunion groups will be returning to campus. 


Have you met your year-group champion? You would have received an email invitation by now. If not, email us at [email protected] and we'll make sure that you're on the list. The champions have been hard at work bringing Maties of each year group together to celebrate Homecoming.

Do not miss out! Your alma mater is preparing to roll out the maroon carpet for our biggest Homecoming to date.
