Student Orientation & Advocacy Service (SOAS)

The Student Orientation and Advocacy Service (SOAS) is a student-centred, walk-in, one-stop referral office for the UCT community and the public. It is also a centre from which the university-wide orientation activities for undergraduate students are developed, organised and coordinated.

The SOAS deals with students’ needs and queries ranging from giving directions around campus – such as finding offices, buildings, people and venues – to referral to services offered by the faculties, the Department of Student Affairs and various other UCT departments.

Due to COVID-19, our services are being offered remotely. Please feel free to contact us with your query: Student Orientation & Advocacy Service (SOAS) office: 021 650 5082 or email
