D ie Neelsie is your one-stop-student-shop – offering approximately 10 000 m² of shopping convenience and approximately 5 000 m² of university offices and lecture halls in the heart of Stellenbosch.

Before you take a doss in the middle of your first lecture, boost your energy levels with a quick cuppa from one of our coffee shops or grab an amasi from Kwikspar. Late for your next lecture, but hungry like the Maties front row at half time? Not to worry, we’ve got your appetite covered. Grab some slap chips or a super smoothie on your way to class.

We’ve got a big screen TV for all-day entertainment and a stage for awesome shows and promos. Various recreational spaces are available for hire. Die Vrouevereniging Hall, situated on the first floor, regularly hosts student dances and functions. Our top floor is home to Matie FM, the Student Representative Council, MAD SQUARE (MAD²), various student associations’ offices, as well as FHARGA’s lecture rooms and study area.
