Food Programme 2020

The purpose of the Food Programme is to provide basic support to students who are hungry and to enhance student learning and success.

Eligible students will receive vouchers that they may redeem at UCT Food & Connect outlets. The advantage of the vouchers is students will have greater choice of lunches. This is made possible through Pay and Connect running in catering residences. Students will sign on and receive vouchers daily that they may redeem by using their smart phone or student card at a point of sale at Food and Connect Stores.

See the Department of Student Affairs website for more information.

Financial aid appeals for 2019

Providing financial aid to eligible students is one of the key priorities for the university. According to preliminary (unaudited) analysis, a total of R1.2 billion was made available for financial assistance at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels for 2018. Coupled with the country’s various economic factors and the significant decrease in government funding, it has become a challenge for the university to maintain past levels of financial assistance. However, the university is committed to helping students who cannot afford fees, provided they meet the financial criteria and register good academic progress.

Please note that all appeals are considered on financial and academic grounds. Where academic information is not final, it will impact on the ability to finalise the appeal outcome. No late appeals applications may be accepted.

Faulty lifts: New emergency numbers

The University of Cape Town (UCT) has appointed a new lift maintenance provider, so the emergency numbers have changed with immediate effect.

Properties & Services (P&S) is currently replacing all the old contact numbers inside the lifts on campus, but until that process is complete, please make a note of the following new numbers (you are welcome to put them on your mobile phone) in the event that you experience any problems:

UCT Maintenance Call Centre: 021 650 4321/2
Campus Security: 021 650 2222/23

Please ensure that you do not call Otis, Schindler or Kone direct as the new service provider is now responsible for maintenance of all lifts.
