TUT Update: 4 March 2019
ACTIVITIES AT ALL TUT CAMPUSES SUSPENDED FOR REMAINDER OF TODAY, 4 MARCH 2019
All activities at TUT have been suspended for today, 4 March 2019. The safety of students, staff and TUT resources is our first priority, therefore due to the renewed student protest action from early this morning, the decision was taken to suspend activities.
Amongst others, the protest is related to NSFAS funded meal allowances for off-campus students, which in terms of DHET’s Circular 6, is a policy matter and not within TUT’s control.
The University remains committed to assisting the affected students and has committed to convene a special EMC meeting to consider, for urgent approval, the applications of service providers of identified accommodation that meet the criteria.
The process of identifying suitable accommodation and service providers at all campuses will continue as a matter of urgency.
