“A beautiful varsity!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

Regal, historic and yet modern campus with a fantastic view of the Table Mountain, I hope you can see the stratus clouds descending, it is a gorgeous site.
The facilities are similar to any European university, you can park on the gravel and grab a shuttle to visit the long list of buildings and 4 campuses. The auditorium is impressive, Nelson Mandela received his honorary degree there.
The cafeteria is spacious and have several scenarios. The rooms for students are very comfortable, we had a great time watching t.v. in them. I will love to study in this beautiful varsity!

“Big Impression”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

It is a massive university that stretches very far. All the hills up and down makes exploring this location very fun as the architecture is quite impressive. There's a wide range of facilities and it is especially interesting mingling with the young intellectuals on their typical day. Definitely a must visit for a true Cape Town culture experience.

“Take a Jammie!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

Had a great time going back to varsity. Took the Jammie from Sandown road. You can leave your car at the Sandown parking lot on the gravel and then grab a shuttle. Take your walking shoes along for the uphill walking on upper campus. Everyday is fashion show at UCT upper campus. Dress to fit it.
