Pretoria – The Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) announced on Friday that activities at their Soshanguve campuses will resume on Monday.
TUT spokesperson Willa De Ruyter said the decision was taken on Thursday following a meeting between TUT Management and student leaders to address a memorandum handed to the University recently.
“It is imperative to resume activities at these campuses without any further delay, hence activities at the Soshanguve campuses will resume on Monday, 29 February 2016,” De Ruyter said.
“Registration at these campuses will be extended until Friday, 4 March 2016, to allow for catch-up on time lost due to the current suspension of activities. The extension of registration only applies to the Soshanguve North and South Campuses.”
Ruyter said exit exams which were scheduled to be written on Friday were postponed until next week Wednesday. Lectures for BTech students, scheduled for Saturday, would still proceed.
“The Directors of Revenue and Financial Aid will be available on the Soshanguve South Campus from Monday, 29 February 2016, to assist students in resolving financial issues they may experience,” she said.
“Additional staff will also be deployed to the campus to assist blocked students who still need to register for the 2016 academic year.”
In a bid to expedite the registration process and avoid queues, staff from the finance and financial aid offices would relocate to the Student Centre from Monday, February 29, to Friday, 4 March.
“All students who still have to register and who have financial issues, should report to the Student Centre on Monday, February 29 for assistance.”
