Every Wednesday the UFC hosts a seminar. The number of guests we have had for these presentations range from a minimum of 15 to a maximum of 70. Participants in the seminars include government officials, NGO representatives, academics and students from both DUT and UKZN (from a variety of disciplines). The presenters too are varied, some of whom are urban design practitioners, urban scholars; architects; philosophers; city activists; and city officials. The seminar series is very robust and has created a real sense of inter-disciplinary engagement across the wide variety of disciplines at DUT.

The UFC also hosts public debates on issues of critical public interest including urban design and security; Whoonga dilemmas; and xenophobia.
