The University of Cape Town (UCT) has announced the plan for a phased return of more students to residences and campus from September 2020. This follows the higher education department’s guidelines allowing for a maximum of 66% of students to return to campus. National COVID-19 guidelines must be followed.
UCT has a four-phase approach.
There will be one person per residence room. Health screening measures and personal protective equipment will be available.
Once Phase 3 is completed, 66% of UCT’s 7 700 students in residences will have returned; 4 200 in university residences and 900 in UCT-leased accommodation.
Return is by invitation only. Returning students must undergo a 10-day self-quarantine.
