The University of Cape Town’s (UCT) R222 million Avenue Road Residence in the Mowbray precinct provides 500 additional student beds, an invaluable addition to the university’s student accommodation provision. It also set a local benchmark as the first student residence in South Africa to achieve a 4-Star Green Star Custom Design rating from the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA), for its water and energy savings and full suite of disability features.
