UCT has suspended classes for a second week, but management has reiterated that staff will be operating on campus and engaging with student activists.
The university has reiterated this week's suspension of lectures won't affect academic activities for the rest of the year.
A group UCT students are still staging a sit-in at the dean of the Health Science faculty’s office, reports EWN's Shamiela Fisher.
The group has been occupying the office on the Medical School campus since Friday, in a protest against 2017 fee increases.
In addition to the issue of university fee increases, demonstrators say their grievances include student victimisation by private security on campus.
The group had met with dean of Health Sciences but were not satisfied with the outcomes of the meeting, explains Fisher.
A small group is still there occupying the office and they are saying that they are not willing to move unless management addresses their grievances.— Shamiela Fisher, EWN reporter
At the same time, a small group of students at Stellenbosch University disrupted tests at the main campus this morning, but the academic programme continues.
Meanwhile, university management at UWC and CPUT are monitoring the situation on their campuses in case disruptions take place.
