The Tshwane University of Technology suspended all academic studies on Monday following protests at the university’s Shoshanguve campus.
Students are protesting over a shortage of accommodation and meal allowances.
They are also unhappy that the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) will not be paying meal allowances for those residing at off-campus residences.
The university’s spokesperson Willa de Ruyter said an announcement will be made later on whether activities will resume on Tuesday.
“All activities at TUT campuses have been suspended for the remainder of the day. That followed renewed protest action at all our sites. In view of the safety of students, staff and property, we decided to suspend activities.”
