Student Residence

Students live in a Student Residence, similar to dorm-style living, conveniently located near campus on a university shuttle bus route. Rooms are typically single or double occupancy with shared kitchen, bathroom, and laundry facilities.

The Cost of Meals is NOT included in the program fees.

Veritas works closely with the International Academic Programs Office (IAPO) at UCT to choose the appropriate accommodation for your semester in Cape Town. We allocate students' rooms in a carefully selected group of apartments close to the UCT campus. Your specific housing allocation will be forwarded to you approximately two weeks before your departure. You will share your conveniently-located residence with other Veritas and ISA students. The self-catering accommodation allows you the greatest amount of flexibility. As it is off-campus accommodation, we strongly encourage you to become an active part of campus life in order to take advantage of the many social and cultural activities at UCT.


All accommodations are within walking distance from campus or students can catch the university shuttle bus called the Jammie on a lower campus shuttle stop.
