COVID PROTOCOLS

Participants who attend lectures in person on campus will be required to sanitise, wear masks, maintain social distancing and follow all Covid-19 directions given by the UCT staff. In line with UCT’s in-principle proposal on vaccination as a condition of campus access, we will require participants to show proof of vaccination.

USING MS TEAMS WEBINAR FUNCTION

For participants who will attend lectures via the MS Teams online platform, we provide instructions on the next page.

ONLINE ETIQUETTE

When joining an online lecture as a participant, please mute your microphone and keep your camera off. Please adhere to all housekeeping rules. These will be announced at the beginning of the session.

LENGTH AND TIMES OF LECTURES

Unless otherwise specified, lectures are about 60 minutes in length, including questions from the audience.

ON-CAMPUS INFORMATION

PARKING (INCLUDING DISABLED PARKING): See Map on page 113.

     
A limited number of Summer School disabled parking disks are issued on a first-come first-served basis only for students genuinely in need of disabled parking disks. Students who use municipal parking disks must inform the Summer School office in writing as they also need a Summer School parking disk. Disabled parking zones are in Cross Campus Road only. To gain access, please present your Summer School disabled parking disk.

ACCESSIBILITY OF BUILDINGS: University buildings are generally accessible to disabled students. Nearly all our venues are wheelchair accessible. Wheelchair accessible toilets are on Level 4 of the building. There is lift access to all levels of the Kramer Law Building. Please contact us to discuss the easiest access route.

LECTURE THEATRE ETIQUETTE: Please switch off all cell phones during lectures and please do not take photographs of the screen during lectures as this bothers fellow participants.

SMOKING, AIR CONDITIONING & SECURITY: Please note that smoking is not allowed indoors on UCT campus. The air conditioning in the lecture theatres unfortunately cannot be internally adjusted and is sometimes quite cool; please bring warm clothing with you. Paramedics will be on duty. If you lose something, contact Campus Protection Services on Level 1. Telephone: 021 650 2222.

REFRESHMENTS: Light lunches, snacks and drinks will be available.
