The official student newspaper of Stellenbosch University since 1 August 1941.

As the only independent student newspaper, Die Matie appears every second Wednesday of the academic term and an electronic version is published on our website within 24 hours. The editorial content includes sections on news, student life, current affairs, arts and entertainment, and sport.

The entire production of Die Matie – from photos, articles and advertisements to page layout and distribution – is managed by the editorial staff who are all students.

4 000 copies of Die Matie are distributed on the main campus of Stellenbosch University, as well as on the satellite campus in Tygerberg and to certain businesses in Stellenbosch. We have an estimated readership of 16 000 students, staff and Stellenbosch residents.

Die Matie Offices are located on the Third Floor of the Neelsie Student Centre, Stellenbosch.
