Where it all began
Varsity Vibe originated at UCT in 2010 when we launched under the Ikeys Vibe banner. We formed a strategic partnership with the UCT rugby club and in our launch year, over 3000 students loved the Vibe and took advantage of our partners’ offers. Our numbers grew to over 4000 per year and expansion was next.
In 2014, we expanded to WITS in Johannesburg. We partnered with Wits Sport and Wits Vibe was launched with over 4000 students joining the Vibe each year.
Other students soon wanted in, so we created a national brand called Varsity Vibe accessible to all students studying in SA.
We developed SA’s 1st Student Discount App and here we are… offering any student in SA the chance to save massively by downloading our app and becoming a member of Varsity Vibe!
