Statement to parents and students around safety issues on the UP Campuses

Posted on June 21, 2016

Since yesterday, there have been protests in and around the Pretoria area. Although these incidents have not affected our campuses, we have decided to temporarily close the Mamelodi Campus as a precautionary measure. 

Alternative arrangements have been made for students who were scheduled to write exams at our Mamelodi Campus today.

Exams are continuing as scheduled at all other campuses.

Should you have any concerns, please contact the University of Pretoria Student Service Centre on 012 420 4111. We will post regular updates on the UP website and on our social media platforms. You can also contact Mamelodi Campus Security on 012 842 3433. This is a 24 hour number.

As always, the safety and security of our students and staff remain our first priority.
