“traditional style”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

The old buildings are so beautiful. The Theology building was painted since we last visited. The inside of the building is so awesome - cool, high walls and glowing wood stairs and floor planks. unfortunately the building is not open for the public. The grounds are well kept and we love to walk on the grass and watch the small squirrels. Stellenbosch university is stretched out and take the time to walk between the buildings and the tall trees.

“Stellies is awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

It is the best University I've studied at. The people there are diverse, the campus is beautiful and it is a stone's throw away from the famous Stellenbosch wineries...The only thing there that I did not like were the beggars, but they are a part of the Stellenbosch experience, especially a beggar lady named Moksie. What a hoot! Also there are many quaint restaurants and historical buildings around. Also Stellenbosch, being a university town has many pubs, bars and clubs for those who enjoy a night out on the town. Also do check out the JS Gericke Library on campus, it is a wonderful underground library...

“At the University”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

We stopped there to buy t-shirts for our grandsons. People were lovely - but it was between classes and crowded in the bookstore. They didn't charge us for parking tho - we weren't there long enough!
