You need to make your own booking for accommodations. Below are hotels that we recommend and from which we will provide transport to the conference.
If you are on a strict budget, you may choose to book a dormitory room at UCT. All dormitory rooms are single occupancy. UCT will select which dorm to house you in and you will need to arrange your own transportation to the conference venue. (The venue takes place on the Upper Campus of UCT.) The rate per night is (room 235 ZAR) + (breakfast 42 ZAR) + (towels and soap 22 ZAR ) Book your dorm directly through UCT using the form at this link. UCT requires a deposit well in advance. If you will be staying in a dorm, I recommend booking your room well in advance.
All of these hotels are within short driving distances of the University of Cape Town. Bus transportation will be provided at the beginning and end of each day. Taxis are readily available. You are free to stay on your own and then provide your own transportation to the conference venue.
