Pretoria - Academic programmes for students at all the Tshwane University of Technology’s (TUT) campuses have been shut down, until further notice.
University spokesperson, Willa de Ruyter said campuses would remain closed due to ongoing and often violent student protest action at TUT campuses since the beginning of this week.
Earlier this week, disgruntled students reportedly disrupted classes. They are demanding a meal allowance from the National Student Financial Scheme (NSFAS) and more accommodation.
Students also reportedly marched to the office of Higher Education Minister Naledi Pandor where police had to use stun grenades to disperse the crowds.
On Wednesday students were advised to vacate residences and go home.
