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

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 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.

Departments have been relocated as follows:

  • all student bodies (SHAWCO, SRC, Varsity News, RAG, Ubunye) – Parking Lot 4 next to the rugby fields
  • Fundi – North Council Meeting Room, Sports Centre
