NOTICE OF IMMEDIATE CAMPUS CLOSURE

This serves as a formal notice to all UNIZULU Students that Management, in consultation with the Chairperson of Council, the Minister of Higher Education and Training and Science and Technology and other relevant stakeholders has resolved to close the Kwa-Dlangezwa campus in light of the current violent student protests at the campus.

The risk assessment suggests that failure to do so will place the lives of both staff and students in jeopardy. The safety of our staff and students is of paramount importance.

In the meantime the university will secure additional security and the assistance of the South African Police Services.

All university activities are thus suspended with immediate effect and all students must vacate the campus as well as on-campus residences by 13h00 of the 17th September 2019. Only staff will be allowed on the campus.

The campus will remain closed until further notice and will only re-open after assessment and finalisation of the investigation into the strike.

Ends.
