UCT needs support from alumni around the world to help it rebuild and recover.

We are therefore asking alumni and friends in the UK to consider making a contribution to the UCT Jagger Recovery Fund which will assist in rebuilding the Jagger Reading Room after the fire, which struck in April last year.

Your gift will greatly assist with the restoration of the Jagger Reading Room where it will help UCT rebuild and rehabilitate this historic building. Although, heartbreakingly, many of the destroyed artefacts are completely irreplaceable, UCT is determined to ensure that a safe new home for scholarship will emerge from the ashes and some exciting plans are afoot.

Should you wish to donate please contact us at
