Dear colleagues and students
I am writing to provide you with an update on the state of the Rondebosch campus and the academic programme following the fire and subsequent evacuation on Sunday, 18 April.
The assessment of the damages and the need to clean residences and academic buildings means that the academic programme at the University of Cape Town (UCT) will be suspended until Friday, 23 April.
In light of the fire affecting the Rondebosch campus of the University of Cape Town (UCT), and the impact this is having on the university’s buildings as well as the evacuation of residences, all academic activities will be suspended tomorrow and on Tuesday.
No classes, tutorials, laboratory work or tests will take place on Monday, 19 April or Tuesday, 20 April. We will assess the situation and provide further updates before midday on Tuesday.
A film produced by a group of Centre for Film and Media Studies (CFMS) honours students has recently been selected for 2 international film festivals in 2021: Berlin Lift-Off in Germany and The African Film Festival in Dallas, Texas.
