The events management unit manages all major UCT corporate events, especially those hosted in the names of the Chancellor and the Vice-Chancellor.
All conferences held at the university must be formally approved by Senate and sponsored by a UCT faculty, department or unit. Please review our events and visitor guideline documents on how to host a conference at the University of Cape Town.
