  1. UCT Parking

No Parking on UCT is allowed, it is strictly only available to UCT students with the correct UCT parking discs on Monday 23rd, Wednesday 25th – Friday 27th September. On Tuesday, 24th and Saturday, 28th September (as it is a public holiday and weekend) parents may park in designated parking spots around the Sports Centre.


Parking around UCT is also very limited, we thus have the following suggestions:

  1. UBER to the competition and back to avoid the need for parking or walking long distances
  2. Parking is available at the lower campus by UCT Fitness Centre or along Woolsack Drive
  3. Should you wish to drive, we suggest you arrive an hour before your reporting time. The driver of the car may wish to do a “Stop and Drop” at the Information area just in front of the UCT Sports Complex and then find parking off campus and walk up
  4. Further parking may be available at The Baxter Theatre


Please note that if you park on upper and middle campus grounds, you will receive a ticket from the UCT Traffic Department.
