Where you can use your student card
The card that opens Doors !
one really great benefit of having a student card is that there are plenty of places in the city that offer discounts to anybody carrying one.
Your UCT student card quite literally opens doors. It’s programmed to allow you to access the library, photocopying facilities and certain academic buildings on campus. Cards are issued at the Card Production Centre in the basement level of the Robert Leslie Social Sciences Building from 08:00 to 16:00.
