Directions to Upper Campus from Cape Town

The University of Cape Town's Groote Schuur Campus is situated on the slopes of Devil's Peak in the suburb of Rondebosch. To reach the upper campus from the city, drive along De Waal Drive or Eastern Boulevard, passing Groote Schuur Hospital on the way.

Just past the hospital the road forks. Take the right-hand fork (M3 to Muizenberg).

Just beyond Mostert's Mill (windmill) on your left, take the Woolsack Drive/University of Cape Town turn-off (Exit 7 Rosebank - M89)

Turn right at the traffic lights on Woolsack Drive and go under the bridge and round a hairpin bend to the northern entrance of the campus.

Directions from Southern Suburbs

From the southern suburbs the approach is along Rhodes Drive, where the southern entrance to the campus is clearly signposted from the left lane. There is no information office at this entrance - you may continue on Rhodes Drive past the university to the turn-off to the northern entrance, which will give access to the Information Office as described above.

Directions to Middle Campus from Cape Town

To reach this campus from the city, proceed as described above but continue straight at the traffic lights, onto a brick-paved road.

Directions from Southern Suburbs

From the southern suburbs the approach is along Rhodes Drive. To reach the middle campus, take the northern entrance turn-off but continue left, underneath the bridge, and turn right at the traffic lights onto the brick-paved road.
