Student Affairs

Welcome to Student Affairs

Dr Matete Madiba
Director: Student Affairs

The Department of Student Affairs (DSA) is responsible for organising projects, programmes, student structures and events for your holistic development throughout your study career at the University of Pretoria. Your participation in these activities and structures is critical for your overall growth.

The activities offer you immense opportunities to enrich your Curriculum Vitae (CV) from your first year on campus to make sure that you become a well-rounded individual who will be able to make a significant impact on society. To maximise your opportunities, you need to use your time wisely and plan accordingly.

The Department is responsible for coordinating services for student wellness and wellbeing. The DSA hosts five units: Student Health Unit, Student Counselling Unit, Disability Unit, Student Development Unit and Student Governance Unit. Your holistic growth and success matters to all of us in the DSA and we would like to work with you to achieve the highest level of success possible.

The Department of Student Affairs is located in the Student Affairs Building (opposite the Student Health Services) within the Hatfield Campus. Students, parents and other interested parties are welcome to make enquiries or discuss challenges concerning studies, accommodation, funding, social activities and a variety of other matters.
