TUT Update: 6 March 2019

Academic programmes for students at all the Tshwane University of Technology’s campuses have been closed with immediate effect, until further notice.

​​The decision follows ongoing and often violent student protest action at TUT campuses since Monday, 4 March 2019.

Since there will not be any services available at on-campus residences and because management is concerned about the welfare of our students, they are therefore required to vacate residences for their own safety.

The safety of the students, staff and TUT property on all campuses remains management's first priority, therefore, due to the volatility and unpredictability of the current situation, the University had no choice but to close academic activities for students, until further notice, in order to allow the situation to calm down.

Management appreciates the support and will continue to engage with DHET, NSFAS and other important role-players towards resolving the current situation.

Information on the recovery plan, will be published on TUT's Website once approved by Senate.

Scheduled activities of the University, including the upcoming graduation ceremonies, will continue.

The University apologises for the inconvenience the situation may cause.

Regular, formal TUT information will be published on www.tut.ac.za
