University pays attention to the students, cleanliness and my son enjoyed his exchange program. I would recommend this university to all students and what a beautiful city.

I was very eager to visit the campus of the most highly regarded university in Africa, however, it was incredibly off putting attempting to get there via public transportation. The campus is not easily reachable unless you take the taxi or drive which can be a pricey expedition hence I was forced to take the train and walk. This experience is not the best. However, the campus is beautiful architecturally speaking but it is offers nothing that google images couldn't satisfy you with.

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!

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.
