Security tips and safety precautions - 9 December 2016 to 3 January 2017

Posted on December 09, 2016


Dear colleagues

In light of the fast approaching holiday, I feel at liberty to convey several security tips and safety precautions to you over the following days.

Gates and access control

From 18:00 on 9 December to 06:00 on 3 January 2017, access to the Hatfield Campus will be restricted to the University Road entrance (P3, which provide access to the Engineering Parkade and the Ring Road). The vehicle gates in Prospect and Roper streets and Lunnon Road will be closed to traffic.

During the abovementioned period only the pedestrian gates in Lunnon Road between 06:00 and 21:00 and University Road (24 hour access) will be operational, and then only to persons with valid staff or student cards.

From 10:00 on 22 December 2016 to 06:00 on 3 January 2017, motorists as well as pedestrians will have to complete a register at the following gates (you will still have to present your staff or student card at the gate during this period):

  • South Campus
  • LC de Villiers Sports Grounds
  • Hillcrest Campus
  • HPC
  • Onderstepoort Campus
  • Groenkloof Campus
  • Mamelodi Campus
  • Prinshof Campus
  • HW Snyman Boom gate
  • Kalafong Hospital
  • University road entrance (Hatfield campus)

ATM machines

Please note that all ATM machines on all campuses will be emptied and switched off on 22 December 2016. The service will be reinstated early in January 2017. 

Office safety

  • Please lock your office and all valuable items inside the office before you go on holiday. Please leave your office keys at home and not in your holiday vehicle.
  • Switch off all air-conditioners, lights, radios, computers, printers, etc. before you leave.
  • Close the office windows.

If you need assistance, feel free to contact the 24-hour Operational Management Centre at Security Services at 012 420 2310/2760, or the 24-hour UP Operational Manager on duty at 083 654 0476.

Thank you for your cooperation in this regard.


Kind regards

JCN Boonzaaier
