UCT Student housing 2023-2024
UCT Student housing
On and off campus, UCT offers a variety of housing options for undergraduate and postgraduate students.
Typically, you’ll begin your stay in a first-tier house (full catering), then move to a second-tier residence (senior catering or self-catering), and finally, third-tier lodging (semi-autonomous self-catering).
Each home has its unique history and customs, but they all strive to deliver a memorable experience for visitors. Because UCT places a premium on safety, all apartments have rigorous access controls and the majority are monitored by closed-circuit television cameras.
Students with impairments can live in a variety of residences. Simply contact the Student Accommodation Office and the Disability Service, and they will assist you with your specific need.
UCT First-tier accommodation
Undergraduate students, who are often under the age of 21, are housed in first-tier homes. Students can eat up to three meals a day in a dining hall at these dormitories. Double rooms are available in several first-tier dwelling buildings.
There is a common area for television, meetings, and social contact, as well as self-operating laundries in these houses. Many of them have a pool and table tennis, and some even have a swimming pool.
UCT Second-tier accommodation
Senior undergraduate and postgraduate students are housed in second-tier residences. In a dining hall, catering residences provide up to three meals every day. The majority of second-tier housing is in the form of 2- to 4-bedroom flats. All of the rooms are single occupancy.
The resident governance systems enable a smooth transition into independent senior student living while still allowing you to share communal space with your colleagues.
These houses have a common room where residents can watch TV, have meetings, and socialise, as well as self-operating laundries. A piano, pool, and table tennis are all available, and some even have access to a swimming pool.
UCT Third-tier accommodation
Senior postgraduate students are accommodated in third-tier residences.
Wardens monitor academic and social well-being in these residences. The wardens ensure that the houses, flats, and purpose-built residences, such as Obz Square, have a decent communal life.
A Residence Association seeks to establish a better residence life experience due to the geographical fragmentation of third-tier accommodation.
Most units are within walking distance of upper campus or close to Jammie Shuttle stops, and all enable easy access to stores and public transportation, with minimal furniture provided.
All residents have access to UCT athletic facilities and swimming pools, and some third-tier apartments include self-operating laundries.
UCT Accommodation for students with spouses and dependents
Students with spouses and dependents (but only students’ own children) are welcome to stay at the JP Duminy home. It is located on Main Road in Mowbray and houses 42 students in flats that are conveniently located near upper campus, the Jammie Shuttle, and local shopping stores.
