The Bloemfontein Campus dates back to 1904, making our university one of the oldest higher-education institutions in the country. The Main Building, and other buildings of historic and architectural importance, portray the calm though vibrant atmosphere appropriate to an academic institution of more than 114 years old.
It is a vast campus where staff and students are encouraged to walk while enjoying the beautiful buildings, parks, lawns, artwork, and other facilities. Every effort has been made to make the campus user- and experience-friendly, including braille-guided areas for blind students, and additional ramps and elevators for students with disabilities.
When on the campus, stop and rest under one of the shady trees. You will find that many of the benches represent artwork by Azwifarwi Ragimana, a famous South African artist. Walk through the Thakaneng Bridge and the Student Centre where you will find a range of takeaway shops, KovsieFM – the campus radio station, stationery and bookshops. The swanky KovsieGear shop offers visitors and students exciting Kovsie merchandise.
Our Bloemfontein, South, and Qwaqwa Campuses are immaculately maintained and provide a safe and secure environment for the more than 40 000 students who study here. Through an active programme of sports, cultural, and social events, our students are also given the opportunity to develop into competent and compassionate future leaders.
Student accommodation is very popular, and our residences are within walking distance of all facilities. Our Bloemfontein Campus is regarded as one of the most integrated campuses in South Africa, with a very diverse group of students.
The campus is situated in one of the main roads passing through Bloemfontein, Nelson Mandela Drive, and is within walking distance of shopping centres, schools, and other places of interest.
