Located in the heart of District Six, the Cape Town Campus accommodates the largest number of CPUT students, with over 16 000 calling the campus home.

The campus houses the university’s largest faculty, the Faculty of Business and Management Sciences, as well as the Faculty of Informatics and Design. A select number of courses offered by the Faculties of Applied Sciences, and Health and Wellness Sciences are also offered on the campus.

Inspired by CPUT’s vision to be at the heart of technology education and innovation in Africa, students have access to cutting edge facilities such as high-tech laboratories, computer labs, study areas and a well-stocked library.

While the university concerns itself with the intellectual development of the nation’s future leaders, it also cares about students’ wellness.

For advice on health matters, such as HIV testing and TB screening, student can visit the well-equipped HIV/Aids Unit, which is based in the Administration Building. Students also have access to social workers and psychologists at the Student Counselling Unit.

For healthcare, student have access to the various services offered by the professionally run clinic, which is also housed in the Administration Building.

The campus’ amphitheater, called the Piazza, is a hub of social activity as students attend various functions hosted by Department of Student Affairs, while the student centre attends to everyone’s nutritional needs.
