Student activities

Studying at CPUT is not only about getting a degree, but also about developing yourself and having a fulfilled student life. To help achieve a balanced student life, Student Affairs offers a wide variety of extra-mural activities, mostly free of charge, which will enhance your student experience at the CPUT.

These activities range from social events to performing arts, religious interaction and first year socialising programmes. By offering these event the DSA recognise the need for social wellness and the student’s ability to relate well to others, both within and outside the family unit. Social wellness involves not only a concern for the individual, but also an interest in humanity and the environment as a whole.
