Kramer Building, Middle Campus, University of Cape Town.
The University of Cape Town (UCT) is South Africa’s oldest university. It was founded in 1829 as the South African College – a boys’ school which also provided some tertiary education. During the 1880s the College grew rapidly in response to the needs of South Africa’s developing economy. In 1918 the tertiary section of the College became the University of Cape Town. The Kramer building is situated on middle campus, and houses the Law Faculty.

Cape Town and the Western Cape are considered among the most beautiful areas in Africa. The pristine coastline with its white sandy beaches, the magnificent countryside with its bountiful rivers, wetlands and dams, and the unique flora kingdom, together with a “Mediterranean-like” climate and friendly community, make it a perfect destination for any visitor. Cape Town is the legislative capital of South Africa, and the historic buildings of the Houses of Parliament are situated in the city centre. Situated at the foot of Table Mountain, the Cape Town Central Business District is a relatively small area, which allows for easy exploration on foot.
