Academic Bookings: These are bookings where the student can prove his/her stay is for academic reasons. Students need to provide proof from either the faculty, department or sponsor stating the reason for stay. This booking charge will be sent to the student's fee account and needs to be paid according to the University's fee account policy.
Personal Bookings: These are bookings where UCT students would like to stay during the vacation period for graduation (graduates are not allowed to have a balance on their fee accounts), holiday work not associated with academic studies, and similar. This booking charge must be paid in full upon making the booking for the duration of the stay and can be paid by credit card, debit card or via bank transfer.
Where to stay
Designated residences available for students' vacation accommodation are selected per vacation and will be announced in due time before the upcoming vacation period. Catering is offered at the same residence or one closeby. See below the dedicated residences for the summer vacation 2019/20.
