  • LECTURE VENUES

    Lectures will be held in the Kramer Law Building, Cross Campus Road, Middle Campus. The final venues will be listed on notice boards in the Kramer Law Building from 4 August 2017.

  • DIRECTIONS

  • PARKING

    Parking is available on Middle Campus in P1, P4, the new Economics Building parking area and in the Bremner Building parking area. Please do not park on verges, pavements or in loading or no-parking zones as the university traffic officers will ticket you.

  • DISABLED PARKING

    Disabled parking zones are in Cross Campus Road only. To gain access, please present your Winter School registration card and Winter School parking disk. Wheelchair access is on Level 4.

    ‘Walking disabled’ students should enquire about parking when registering and obtain and clearly display a Winter School disk. To use this facility you are required to complete an application form and submit a recent medical certificate from a medical doctor stating that you are able to drive but cannot walk long distances. Only a limited number of Winter School disabled parking disks are available; these 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 an additional Winter School parking disk.

  • SHUTTLE SERVICE

    The nearest stop to the Kramer Law Building for the Jammie Shuttle service is the Bremner Building. For information about timetables and routes contact Jammie Shuttle directly at 021 685 7135 as the service is limited during the university vacation.

  • 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 Building. Please contact us to discuss the easiest access route.

  • SECURITY

    Thefts occasionally occur from cars and from unattended bags. Please lock vehicles securely and keep your possessions with you. Parking areas are regularly patrolled by campus security officers. If you lose something, contact Campus Protection Services on Level 1. Telephone: 021 650 2121.

  • SMOKING, CELL PHONES & AIR CONDITIONING

    Please note that smoking is not allowed indoors on UCT campus. Please turn off cell phones before entering the lecture venues. The air conditioning in the lecture theatres unfortunately cannot be internally adjusted and is sometimes quite cool; please bring warm clothing with you.

  • LENGTH AND TIMES OF LECTURES

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

  • RESERVATION OF SEATS

    Please do not hold seats for other participants. If you have not taken up your seat five minutes before the lecture begins, your seat may be sold.

  • RECORDING OF LECTURES

    Please obtain the lecturer’s permission before recording lectures.

  • BOOKS AND HANDOUTS

    Lecturers are asked to recommend readings available locally but we cannot guarantee this. Handouts may be given free or sold at cost.

  • UCT LIBRARY

    Winter School students may use the reading facilities in the Chancellor Oppenheimer Library on Upper Campus. Please show your Winter School registration card and sign the visitors’ register at the reception desk. Where possible recommended books and journals will be made available and may be on display. However, it is not permissible to take material out of the library.

    Photocopies may be made by using a non-refundable card purchased for R25,00 from the Loans Desk in the library.

    The Brand van Zyl Law Library in the Kramer Building is a specialist library used by postgraduate law students, particularly in January, and is not accessible to Winter School students.

  • REFRESHMENTS

    The Kramer Cafeteria offers teas, snacks and lunches from 7.30 am to 5.00 pm (Mondays to Fridays).

  • MAILING LIST

    There is no charge for joining or for corrections to the mailing list. Please notify us should your address or contact details change.

  • FILM PROGRAMME

    This is a free film programme designed around courses. On account of time and venue constraints popular screenings cannot always be repeated, nor can clashes with courses and lectures be avoided. Requests for repeats may be handed in at the office, addressed to the Winter School Film coordinator. Information about the programme, times and venues will be displayed on noticeboards in the Kramer Law Building during Winter School. Please check the noticeboards regularly during Winter School for information about changes, repeats or additions. Latecomers will not be admitted after the first five minutes of the start of film screenings.
