Academic activities for students at TUT’s Soshanguve Campuses resume on Monday

5 October 2018

Academic activities at the Tshwane University of Technology’s (TUT) Soshanguve North and South Campuses will resume on Monday, 8 October 2018. Ongoing violent protest action and damage to property that posed a serious risk to the safety of students and staff at these campuses left the University no choice but to suspend activities at these campuses in order to restore normality.

Students may occupy residences from 7 October 2018 in order to prepare for the resumption of normal activities.

Safety is TUT’s first priority, therefore a security contingency plan was implemented that will, among others:

  • Require students to use only designated entrances to these campuses. Student will not be allowed to enter campus if they use other entrances.
  • All students will be vetted before they can access campus. Only registered students will be allowed onto campus and they will have to show a valid South African Identity document, student card and proof of registration for the 2018 academic year. 
  • Students must ensure that they print their proof of registration before coming to the campus, i.e. at an internet café or library.
  • All staff and students must display their staff and student cards visibly at all times.
  • Trespassers will be apprehended and charged for trespassing.

Faculties will arrange catch-up programmes and tests with students. 

Year-end examinations for students at all TUT campuses, except the Soshanguve North and South campuses, will commence on 12 November 2018. 

More information on year-end exams for Soshanguve students will be communicated with them upon their return.

Timetables for the year-end examinations will be published on TUT’s Website under Examination Time Tables.
