Specials for Students in Cape Town

Use your student card to get discounts on meals, drinks and everything cool in Cape Town!

Last Updated: 5 January 2017

It’s tough being a student in Cape Town these days. With exams coming up, part-time jobs to keep the bills paid taking up most of your time and a pile of assignments waiting to be written every other week, there comes a point when every student feels the need to have a pleasant day out – without breaking the bank that is. One really cool benefit of being a student is that there are plenty of places in the city that offer discounts to anyone carrying a student card, so we’ve rounded up a list of the best places to go if you want to eat out, have fun or party till you can’t feel your feet.

FOOD

Tribakery
When exam season rolls up, we all appreciate a quick cuppa joe from the nearest caffeine supplier we can find. Instead of settling for tasteless coffee from the campus vending machine, head down to Tribakery and have a cappuccino for only R10p/p. 
Note: Varsity Vibe only

Shop F56 Cavendish Square | Cavendish Street | +27 (0)21 671 6020
Clock Tower Retail Centre | V&A Waterfront | +27 (0)21 418 2212

Da Vinci’s on Kloof
This Kloof Street restaurant is known for their thin-based pizzas, delicious burgers and hearty fare. Choose from beef, chicken, vegetarian and ostrich patties served on a bun or in a bowl (if you prefer a healthier option). Students receive 10% off their meal any day (sit-down only).

70 Kloof Street | Gardens | +27 (0)21 424 7504info@davincis.co.za

Trenchtown
AFDA students are known for frequenting this island-themed restaurant so Trenchtown has decided to give some love back: every Wednesday, students from AFDA get to pick the specials for the day from a list provided on the Trenchtown Facebook page. This includes pizza, drinks, burgers and side dishes. If you need a chilled midweek break, bring some friends along and mingle with the creative kids taking over Obs.

SHOPPING

Topshop
Keep up with the latest fashion trends at this chic UK clothing store that’s expanded to South African stores. Visit any Topshop branch with your student card to qualify for their 10% discount on all purchases. Guess the "I don't have anything to wear" excuse is now officially null and void!

Shop No. 151 UL | Canal Walk Shopping Centre | Century Boulevard | +27 (0)21 529 1900
Shop 7202 Upper Level | V&A Waterfront | +27 (0)21 419 5900

iStore
Every student knows how difficult it is to get by without a laptop, and computers can be quite pricey. Apple is offering a 3% discount to students, teachers and staff members on laptops and desktop computers (one of each per person) – that’s a few hundred rands off your purchase. This offer is only valid for full-time students and staff members.

Cape Union Mart
If you’re looking for camping gear, practical clothing or pretty much anything related to outdoor fun, Cape Union Mart should be your first stop. Get a 5% discount off your purchase at any of their branches in the city (offer doesn’t apply to GPS devices or Suunto products).
Canal Walk Shopping Centre | Century Boulevard |+27 (0)21 555 4692  info@capeunionmart.co.za

FUN

Two Oceans Aquarium
You’re never too old to go looking for Nemo and Dory at the aquarium. The Two Oceans Aquarium has slashed their ticket price to R110p/p (or R100p/p if you purchase your ticket online) for all students, all year round. Check out the new I&J Ocean Exhibit featuring a 10 metre long tunnel surrounded by fish of all kinds swimming about, visit the penguin sanctuary or go diving with sharks - if you’re feeling valiant of course.
Dock Road | V&A Waterfront | +27 (0)21 418 3823

The Labia
This independent theatre in Gardens gives you a chance to see your favourite blockbuster hits, local films and thought-provoking documentaries for only R40p/p. Unlike at other cinemas, you can order food and drinks to enjoy in the theatre while watching your movie or purchase a Movie Meal Special for Two and have a meal from Societi Bistro, Ocean Basket or Diva Caf Ristorante.

68 Orange Street | Gardens | +27 (0)21 424 5927 | labiatheatre@telkomsa.net

Jump Around
This trampoline park is all the rage: everyone from your cousin to your uncle to your baby sister is talking about it. You can enjoy a ‘free bounce’ on one of their 50 trampolines, show off your hoop skills in the basketball lane, score a few goals on the soccer pitch, leap into the foam pit or dodge, dip, dive, and duck your way through a game of dodgeball with your pals. Jump Around is giving students a discount of R30p/p for one hour of jumping and R50p/p for a two-hour jump session every Monday to Thursday from 12pm to 9pm – a great bargain for some post-campus fun.
Unit 3 Table Bay Industrial Business Park Milner Street | Paarden Eiland | +27 (0)21 510 1997 | info@jumparound.co.za

Baxter Theatre
One of the most popular theatres in Cape Town is offering students 10% off certain ticket purchases. See a play, laugh your socks off at a comedy show or settle down and enjoy an intimate music concert at this superb performance arts centre that showcases the best talent the city has to offer.
Note: The discount only applies to certain shows.
Main Road | Rondebosch | +27 (0)21 685 7880

Kirstenbosch Gardens

Spend a day frolicking in the flowers or take a hike up a tricky mountain trail in this picturesque garden. Students need only pay R30p/p to enter the exquisite venue and dedicate an entire day to appreciating the wonders of nature found right here in our beautiful city.
Rhodes Drive | Newlands | +27 (0)21 799 8783

Yoga Zone
Are you keen to start getting fit this season? Yoga Zone is offering a special package for South African students: choose from an unlimited amount of yoga classes a month for R590p/p or sign up for 10 classes over four months for R650p/p. If it's your first time doing yoga, check out their fantastic intro special that offers 10 classes in two weeks for just R170p/p.

58 Strand Street | Cape Town City Centre | +27 (0)21 421 8136

Bammies Tours and Shuttles
Travelling through Cape Town can be a bit of a mission if you don’t like driving much. That’s where Bammies Tours comes in – this awesome travel and shuttle service offers half day, full day or overnight trips all over the Western Cape. Students can travel to any place within 100-km at a price of R150p/p for two people and R100p/p for three people. If you’re taking a trip further than that – that is, a trip that requires traveling via an aeroplane – rides to the airport will cost R300.

DRINKS

Fiction Bar
Untamed Youth is the party to be at if you’re in the mood for a drink or a dance. Fiction has drinks specials and a discounted cover charge for students every Tuesday at this trendy Indie/Dance/Electro bash.

226 Long Street | Cape Town City Centre | +27 (0)21 422 0400

Gandalf’s
This alternative Obs bar hosts a monthly student night on Saturdays with unbelievably cheap drinks specials. You can get shots for R7, grab a beer for only R10 or satisfy your sweet tooth with caramel vodka or bubblegum tequila for a measly R9. If you’re looking for a mid-week hangout, pop into Gandalf’s on a Thursday from 9pm to 2am for bottomless drinks at only R50p/p for girls and R70p/p for guys.
299 Lower Main Road | Observatory | +27 (0)83 330 0700

Club 89
Turn up to some techno at Club 89’s student nights every Thursday. Students can get drinks like a double brandy and Coke or a double vodka and lemonade for just R45 and caramel vodka for R15! Even entry to the club is cheap for the night: you’ll pay only R50p/p before midnight and R70p/p thereafter.
89 Long Street | Cape Town City Centre | +27 (0)71 163 5991

Note: you won’t qualify for a discount unless you present a valid student card – make sure to carry your student card or Varsity Vibe card so you can take advantage of these awesome specials.
