Message from the Vice-Chancellor and Principal

Posted on February 04, 2016

Dear UP Students 
Student protesters attempted to disrupt a number of lectures at Hatfield Campus of the University of Pretoria this morning. The situation was contained and classes continued.
The safety of students and staff remains the University’s highest concern and security personnel are on standby to control any further attempts to disrupt classes.
EFF students are demanding student accommodation to be provided by the University. The University residences are currently full and there is a waiting list of students who have already applied for accommodation, but have not yet been placed. 
The University will honour the waiting list, and is currently negotiating with providers of private accommodation to assist with further placements.
Yours sincerely
Prof Cheryl de la Rey
Vice-Chancellor and Principal
