UCT is closed today: Thursday, 22 October 2015. The situation is such on campus that safety and security cannot be guaranteed. Please refrain from coming onto campus. If you are participating in the protest action please do so lawfully.
The situation nationwide is volatile and we ask all those participating to act in a manner that does not heighten the tensions or trigger violent confrontations.
The executive is in ongoing engagement with all parties including SAPS to attempt to calm the situation down. The safety of our students and staff (those protesting and those who are not) is our priority. If you are experiencing difficulties please dial Campus Protection Services on 021 650 2222.
