Current status

Our attempts to resume normal university activities today were  frustrated by large groups of protesting students who disrupted classes on most of our campuses. The Bellville campus was particularly hard hit where students had running battles with police and security guards .

Classes to commence on Tuesday

Normal university activities are expected to resume on Tuesday, 11 October. Classes remain suspended tomorrow (Monday, 10 October) but all students should return to classes on Tuesday.

We are aware that many staff members are concerned about whether they should report for duty tomorrow. The Council Exco is meeting this evening and a determination on the way forward as well as staff reporting for work is expected to be made in that meeting. The meeting should conclude at around 7pm and the outcome will be communicated to you as soon as possible.

Staff to leave campus

The situation on Bellville campus has become totally untenable. In the interest of the safety of all staff members the Vice-Chancellor has given permission for staff, across all campuses, to leave immediately. This arrangement is currently only for the rest of today and we will communicate what the plan is for Thursday during the course of the day.
