Known colloquially as the ‘Fish Bowl’ because of its all-glass exterior, the building was designed by UP alumnus Samuel Pauw to fit between the split-legged construction of the Human Sciences building. Construction took place in 2001 and 2002. The building features elements of Neo-Industrialism. The CSC is an accessible and efficient centre for student administration at the main entrance to the University that consolidates the various sections previously scattered over the campus into one facility. Prospective and current students can now apply for admission, pay fees, apply to residences, obtain bursary and loan information and receive their student cards all under one roof.
