GWC Campus

The College campus is located beside the sea in Muizenberg, Cape Town, 45 minutes drive from Cape Town city centre. The main teaching centre, Bishop Morris House, and the study centre, Broughton Knox Centre, are on Beach Road. These buildings house lecture halls, a library, a study centre, a computer lab, a chapel, and administration offices. GWC’s faculty centre, residential blocks for men, women and married couples, and the new Hope Motlhope Student Centre are all close at hand.


About half of GWC’s students live in college accommodation and enjoy the advantages of Christian community. Students in Foord House and the women’s residence eat together in the canteen at Foord House, and students from other residences are welcome to join them. There is a weekly lunch for the whole college. The central campus, including Foord House residence, is covered by Wi-Fi.

The Itumeleng (Hope) Motlhope Student Centre

Construction of the Itumeleng (Hope) Motlhope Student Centre began in June 2017 and we were handed the keys in October 2018. We started having our community lunch in the new dining hall soon after that and students will officially move in, in January 2019.

This new five storey development will house 45 students. The dining hall is situated on the top floor and has extensive views over the ocean and mountains around Muizenberg.

Ground floor parking is easing parking congestion in the neighbouring roads.
