The institution has announced it will give both English and Afrikaans equal status from the beginning of next year.
There has been ongoing debate over the language policy and protests calling for its revision.
The Student Representative Council's James de Villiers says it is a step in the right direction to ensure inclusivity on the campus.
"The SRC would like to reiterate that it does not believe that this is a decision against any particular grouping, or the death of Afrikaans but rather be seen as the university trying to take a well-balanced decision to tackle the issue of multilingualism in South Africa."
