Campus Password Account Management

  • Stellenbosch University uses single-sign-on (SSO) technology in conjunction with a central authentication service (CAS) to provide access to technology enabled services for staff and students.
  • This enables you to use the same username and password to access the many technology enabled resources and services available to you on and off campus.
  • The username and password supplied to you is typically called your "Stellenbosch University Campus Username and Password Account" or simply "Campus Account".
