Registering with the Disability Service
As soon as possible after registering at UCT come to the Disability Service offices to complete the registration form to request support or special assistance (also known as 'reasonable accommodations'). Please bring any supporting documentation with you. You can speak to a staff member to discuss your individual requirements.
Disabled students not requiring assistance are encouraged to register with the Disability Service so your name can be added to our distribution lists for social and advocacy events.
