The Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) management has suspended academic activity on all of its campuses for Tuesday.
This comes after violent protests erupted at a student residence in the CBD on Monday afternoon.
Students burned mattresses and rubbish along the roads and police clashed with some protesters inside a student residence.
It's believed the group is upset over the pending outcome of a disciplinary process involving four students.
Private security officials and an armoured police vehicle are monitoring the situation near the Cape Town campus.
EWN's Kevin Brandt reports that a security assessment will now be conducted on the university's campuses.
