The majority of previous participants on the LSE-UCT Summer School have opted to book accommodation in UCT’s secure and modern residence on UCT’s lower campus, a ten minute walk or short campus bus ride from the LSE-UCT Summer School teaching buildings. A booking and payment form will be provided to all registered participants once they have paid their tuition fees to confirm their place on the programme. A limited number of rooms have been allocated to the Summer School, including some with disabled access, and accommodation can be booked at discounted rates for a limited period. Any bookings made after the advertised date will be subject to availability and may be at higher rates.
Accommodation is in single or twin rooms, within single-sex flats shared by up to eight people. Each flat has a shared bathroom and kitchenette/ lounge/study area. There are no self-catering facilities in the residence, but a number of catering options are available on and near the UCT campus. Wifi internet is available in all rooms.
Accommodation at UCT’s Graca Machel Hall of Residence for 14 nights will cost ZAR 7,200 (approximately £440). This includes a single bedroom, breakfast, dinner, towels and soap. Further details about how to book accommodation will be sent to participants once they have confirmed their place on the programme.
