UCT Mobile

UCT mobile app

UCT Mobile is an app for mobiles and tablets that brings all the UCT services and information you need together in one easy-to-use interface. It allows you to search for and reserve library books, check the Jammie Shuttle timetable, check fee account balances, check your course and exam timetables and your test and exam results.


The app is available for iOS and Android via the relevant app stores. If you have a different phone, you can still access the app through your mobile or PC browser at http://uctmobile.uct.ac.za

To install the app

  1. Go to either the iTunes App store or the Google Play store and search for University of Cape Town.
  2. Select the UCT Mobile icon, click Install and the app will download and install.
