Only go if you have some personal connection with the university- I went with a friend who had gone there. Could be tied up with a visit to the Rhodes Memorial and the Irma Stern... read more

As far as exam venues go, Jameson was cold and drafty. But maybe the secret is to not write exams there and just go check it out instead. It's a lot like some other halls but I suppose special in its own way.

have you ever looked up a long staircase to find a Tall Tower majestically looking down. if you have not, pay a visit to UCT to view Jameson Hall. if Architecture is your interest, then worth the visit.
