Campus announcement
12 October 2016

Dear parents, guardians and sponsors

The Executive and the Senior Leadership Group (SLG) have made a decision to extend the suspension of classes and the closure of all UCT campuses up to and including Friday, 14 October 2016.

Engagements with multiple stakeholders are continuing and the ongoing planning in order to find ways to conclude the academic year successfully is far advanced. An announcement in this regard is expected soon.

Key and critical services will be provided on Thursday and Friday, eg services to students in residences (which remain open). Staff and their direct line managers are to agree on final arrangements within departments and sections.

Other examples of critical services to be provided include Vula, the Student Wellness Service, the Disability Service, the Refugee Rights Unit, services in the Masingene Building, student financial aid services, student treasury services, the Campus Protection Services and critical services in the Bremner building.

Please note that the Jammie Shuttle service will not be operating and the libraries will be closed on both days.
