OCD?

We are recruiting participants for a study on Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and the brain.

This study investigates how the brains of people with OCD work in comparison to the brains of healthy individuals. It also looks at response to medication in some people with OCD.

Researchers from Stellenbosch University are inviting people with OCD, siblings of people with OCD, as well as healthy individuals to take part.

Contact: Prof Christine Lochner (cl2@sun.ac.za; 021 938 9179) or her research assistants (OCDRSA@sun.ac.za; 021 938 9654

Call by vice-chancellors for a meeting with the President of South Africa

The vice-chancellors of all 26 public universities are calling for an urgent meeting with the President of South Africa, to register their anger at the scourge of gender-based violence in the country and to push for a plan of action to respond decisively to this crisis.

The rape and murder of the University of Cape Town student, Uyinene Mrwetyana, and the murder of UWC student Jesse Hess are the latest cases among others, which have rallied the South African society together across constituencies, to declare in one voice that enough is enough.

Temporary closure of Steve Biko Building

The Steve Biko Building has been temporarily closed for renovations since 1 July 2019 and will remain closed until 31 March 2020.

The Cissy Gool Plaza Food Court and the UCT Bookshop will not be affected by the temporary closure and will operate as normal throughout the construction period. The UCT community is advised that there will be noise, dust, smells and fumes during this renovation period, which might affect the surrounding areas and buildings.

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.
