Bringing academic project on track

- Wits University

Statement from the Senior Executive Team:

We would like to confirm that we are on track to reopen the University tomorrow morning (Wednesday, 28 October 2015). We have received communication from the Students' Representative Council in this regard.


It is absolutely imperative that academic activities commence so that we do not lose the academic year.

We urge all role-players to focus on the academic project and to refrain from compromising it in any way.

We also urge all members of the University community to respect the rights of others in this regard.


We have put in place reinforced security protocols at entrances and other key places on campus.

Please ensure that you carry your official University access card at all times.

Should you experience any problems, please contact Campus Control at the numbers available on the back of your access card or make your way to the closest Campus Control office.


Academic staff members are requested to refrain from setting tests or assignments. This message has been communicated to the Deans of the Faculties.

We urge you to exercise sensitivity towards all members of the University community. We would like to thank you once again for your understanding and support over the past few days.
