Pocket Guide: Rondebosch University of Cape Town Hotels

The University of Cape Town (UCT) has four campuses. The main campus, Groote Schuur, is located just off the M3 in Rondebosch to the south of the city centre, where you can find a good range of hotels, from budget hostels to high end boutique-style accommodation. The campus can also be reached by Metrorail.

The three other campuses – Medical Campus in Observatory, Hiddingh Campus in the city, and the Breakwater Campus at Cape Town's Waterfront – are even closer to the city centre and its wide range of accommodation options.

Stay near South Africa’s Oldest University

The University of Cape Town was founded in 1829. It is the oldest university in South Africa and the second oldest on the African continent, with over 25,000 students.

UCT has an impressive location as well as an impressive academic record. The main teaching campus, known as Upper Campus, is situated in the Rhodes Estate on the lower slopes of Devil’s Peak, and has superb views across the Cape Peninsula. This is separated from the Middle and Lower Campuses by the M3 expressway and the university sports fields. Middle and Lower Campus are spread throughout the attractive and historic suburbs of Rondebosch, Rosebank and Mowbray. The three campuses together are generally referred to as the ‘main campus’.

What to Seen and Do near the University of Cape Town

Visitors to Rondebosch will discover that the Groote Schuur Estate has some impressive and historic buildings with Cape Dutch origins, among them the Groote Schuur Building, rebuilt after a fire in 1896. Also worth a visit is the cast iron Victorian Rondebosch Fountain on Main Street.
