It appears that some lectures are continuing at UCT, despite several disruptions on campus this morning.
EWN's Shamiela Fisher reports that protesting students have regrouped at the Baxter Hall residence near Lower Campus.

The group of demonstrators started on Upper Campus this morning and worked their way through to Middle Campus in an effort to disrupt lectures as well as meetings, and mobilise support for their cause.
It is not yet clear how the protesters will proceed, explains Fisher.
It is understood that a meeting will be held to discuss the way forward, at the same time students in the Health Sciences faculty are holding a press conference regarding their grievances.
Last week, medical students staged a sit-in at the dean of the Health Science faculty’s office.
At the same time, UCT vice-chancellor Max Price has cautioned that the university could shut down for the year, if student protests continue.
Meanwhile, CPUT announced yesterday that campus has been shut down, and protests continue at UWC.
