Latest update on protest


University activities suspended for Friday, 16 October 2015.

Dear Colleagues and Students

We are doing all that we can to diffuse the current situation on campus. We are making another attempt to engage with the students at the main gates on the Braamfontein campuses now. We are confident that the students will stand down from the main gates shortly. In this regard, we are again trying to get an indication of the number of staff and students still on the Braamfontein campuses – please let us know via how many people are still on campus and in which buildings you are situated.

We have taken a decision to postpone all University activities on all our campuses tomorrow, except for the Medical School Campus. The Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences will communicate directly with staff and students regarding the activities planned for the Faculty tomorrow.

Thank you for your patience in this matter. We will keep you updated.
