The Orientation Office deals with students’ needs and queries ranging from directions (eg finding offices, buildings, people, venues, etc) to services offered by the Department of Student Affairs and various other UCT departments.

The Orientation Office is also a centre from which the university-wide orientation activities for undergraduate students are developed, organised and coordinated.

We provide access to information and assistance with using this information effectively. The Orientation Office works closely with faculties and departments within UCT and where appropriate refers students to the relevant office.

Please feel free to contact us with your query or visit the office in the Computer Science Building.
