University continues to operate as usual

- Wits University

The Wits Senior Executive Team assures staff and students that University continues to operate as usual.

It has come to our attention that a group of students are threatening to shut down the Wits campus today.

We would like to assure you that the University continues to operate as usual and that the academic programme goes ahead as planned. We have had no disruptions to the academic programme since the start of this semester and we are determined to keep it this way.

Additional security has been brought onto all campuses and the Public Order Police Services are on standby, should they be required.

We ask all staff and students to remain calm if any incident occurs, to exercise patience and restraint and to walk away from difficult situations. Please report all incidents to Campus Control on (011) 717-4444 or (011) 717-6666 or in person at your nearest Campus Control Office. Staff members should also advise their line managers of any incidents.

We will keep you updated throughout the day.
