Exam Message from the Vice-Chancellor and Principal to all students.
Final Court Interdict - 2 March 2016
Interim Court Interdict - 26 January 2016
TUT update: 25 May 2017
Activities at TUT’s Pretoria Campus to resume on Friday, 26 May 2017
Activities at the Tshwane University of Technology’s Pretoria Campus will resume on Friday, 26 May 2017. All staff members should please ensure they report for duty. This follows the two day-long suspension of activities due to the ongoing unprotected strike action by a group of security guards.
Activities at the University’s other campuses will also continue as scheduled.
Examinations will commence on Monday, 29 May 2017, as scheduled. A contingency plan is in place to safeguard students, staff, examinations and exam venues. The situation will be monitored throughout the weekend. Students are advised to keep an eye on their TUT4Life mailboxes and visit the TUT Website on www.tut.ac.za for regular updated information.
The striking security guards, who are demanding to be insourced by the University, rendered the Pretoria and Ga-Rankuwa Campuses of the University inaccessible on Wednesday, and the Pretoria Campus again on Thursday. After assessing the situation, management resolved to suspend activities on these days for the safety of staff and students.
The University recognises the right of any person to participate in protest action, but condemns the unprotected strike action and disruption of activities, which are depriving students of the opportunity to prepare for the upcoming examinations.
A meeting of the Insourcing Task Team, as proposed by the stakeholders, is scheduled for 26 May 2017, to address insourcing issues.
Management also warns that the final Court Interdict awarded to TUT on 2 March 2016, is still in place and any perpetrators of violence, or persons who transgress the terms of the Interdict, will face action by the SAPS.

In view of this, the requirement to enter a password to logon, has temporarily been removed. Students now only need to enter a student number and pin to log on. The University would like to apologise for the inconvenience this has caused.
Due to vendor required maintenance on the Storage Infrastructure hosting the ITS servers, the online application system will not be available on 28 May and 4 June 2017. TUT would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Attention NSFAS students: The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has called on students who received funding for 2017 but who have not yet signed their agreement forms, to ensure they sign these forms at their respective institutions before 31 May 2017. NSFAS emphasised that affected students could possibly face a retraction of NSFAS funding if they fail to honour their obligation to sign, even though they have been approved for funding.
