Nighttime restriction of movement on campus relaxed

- Wits University

No major incidents reported over the weekend.

Academic Programme

We enter the last week of the academic programme this week and all classes resume as per the academic calendar.


There were no major incidents reported over the weekend.

Relaxation on movement on campuses at night

Given that there were no major incidents over the weekend and the assurances that we have received from student leaders and residence staff, we are progressively relaxing the restrictions on the movement of students as the situation improves at night.

As from today, Monday, 24 October 2016, students need to remain within their residences or areas of study from 1am – 5am. Should you wish to leave a learning venue during this period, you will be escorted back to your residences by Campus Control, who will be stationed outside these centres. These are temporary measures that are being progressively lifted as the situation stabilises.

Students programme of action today

We are aware that students and workers have planned several marches today, including a march involving students with disabilities. We respect the rights of those who choose to protest provided that it does not impinge on the rights of those who want to work and learn. Please remember to report all incidents to Campus Control on (011) 717-4444 or (011) 717-6666.
