Its mission is to:

  • give academically deserving disabled people access to a fair and equal educational and work experience
  • interact appropriately with students, staff, prospective students and visitors with disabilities
  • remove any physical, policy, information and attitude barriers that might prevent students and staff from fulfilling their potential.

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.

Students with disabilities 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.
