University closed until Monday, 26 October 2015

- Wits University

Advisory: In light of the current student protests, Wits University has suspended all University activities until Monday, 26 October, 2015.

In order to ensure the safety and security of our staff and students, the executive management has decided to suspend all University activities for the remainder of this week. This applies to all staff (academic, professional, support and administrative) and students. Wits also recognises the need to allow time for the necessary negotiations to take place to resolve the current situation.

The University encourages students to use this time productively to prepare for their examinations.

Students are also reminded that any protests that take place off campus are out of Wits University’s control and that the University has no influence over how the South African Police Service may deal with situations that occur in public areas.

Please note that the University will communicate with you only via its official channels: SMS’s, your staff/student email address, the Wits website or the University’s official Twitter (@Wits_News and @WitsUniversity) and Facebook ( accounts.
