In a statement the institution says the incident occurred on Tuesday.
This is the second sexual assault incident in the vicinity of Rhodes Memorial in just five weeks.
The university says the student was approached by unknown men near the Rhodes Memorial Restaurant.
It also adds the incident is similar to one which occurred last month when another student was raped by an unidentified person.
The institution’s management has urged students to avoid the area especially at night.
UCT spokesperson Gerda Kruger says police are investigating both incidents.
She says counselling has been provided for the two women.
