University of Cape Town Residence Fees 2021 – 2022
Students in residences, houses or flats will be required to pay an annual residence fee as well as a meal plan fee (where applicable) and such amenities and laundry levies as may be defined by the University Council. The full amount due will depend on the residence, house or flat to which a student is eventually allocated. A student is liable for the applicable fees when an accommodation offer has been accepted.
An initial amount of residence fees will be R31 000 for catering and R20 000 for self-catering and must be paid to the university by 1 February 2021, or prior to registration in the case of non-South African students eligible for local fees, as determined by the university’s finance department, and the balance by 30 June 2021.
Failure to meet the set payment requirements could result in the student facing de-registration.
Students should ensure that they are acquainted with the rules for fee payments. Students who will be moving into student accommodation must adhere to the payment schedule stipulated by the University’s Fee Office. Information on this can be obtained from the Fees Office.
