The Centenary is an opportunity for our global community to celebrate the impact that Wits has had on their lives, a chance to reflect and to look to the future.

What A Year!

The Wits Centenary Campaign has surpassed all expectations and continues to gain momentum. I am heartened and grateful for the support and goodwill that has been shown to the University and me personally in this special year. - Vice-Chancellor and Principal, Zeblon Vilakazi.

Wits Celebrating 100 Years


The character of Wits University including its massive infrastructure and spaces reflect its origins and changing societal needs through the years. The university’s development as a crucial place in Johannesburg, part of its fabric, has been an organic one, allowing Wits’ staff, students and communities to navigate their way creatively across disciplines and campuses.
