Student hotspots in Cape Town

Home to a number of the country’s top-rated universities, Cape Town is a uni student paradise offering art, culture, beauty and general good vibes. Whether you’re a Mother City local, an international student or somewhere in between, finding affordable and fun spots can be a challenge.  

To help you out, we’ve put together a guide of student gems. From trendy cafes to nightclubs and the iconic V&A Waterfront, we check out a few student hotspots in Cape Town you have to visit.   

V&A Waterfront 

The V&A is more than your typical mall. It’s also home to the V&A Food Market, where you can try affordable gourmet goods and international street food, the Cape Town Comedy Club for a night of laughs and the Two Oceans Aquarium. Don’t forget to take a spin on the Cape Wheel for a bird’s eye view of the city. 

Muizenberg Beach  

Muizenberg beach is a year-round hotspot whether you’re an avid surfer or enjoy budget-friendly beachfront cocktails. Offering a stunning Blue Flag beach ideal for surfers of all levels, vintage stores, second-hand bookstores and a row of beachside restaurants and bars, Muizenberg may quickly become your newest go-to spot.  

First Thursdays  

When the first Thursday of every month comes around, students all over Cape Town hit the city centre streets. With dozens of art galleries and cultural events showcasing a wealth of diverse artistic talent and offering free drinks and snacks, you’ll have a great night experiencing the Mother City’s unique art scene.  

Long Street 

Known as the heart of Cape Town’s party scene, Long Street is the perfect spot for a night out. Enjoy pre-drinks at The Waiting Room before hitting the dance floor at the Soho Night Club. From live performances to DJs, students can dance the night away at any one of the many nightclubs lining this iconic street. 

Neighbourgoods Market  

Woodstock’s beloved Neighbourgoods Market is a must-visit. Not only is it a great place to meet fun locals, but you can indulge in mouth-watering food and drinks while enjoying the incredible selection of arts and crafts. Mojo Market in Sea Point is another top market to visit if Woodstock is out of your range.
