Qwaqwa Campus reopens on Wednesday 18 May 2016
2016-05-16

The Qwaqwa Campus of the University of the Free State (UFS) will reopen residences on Wednesday 18 May 2016 from 12:00 for occupation by registered students. The library and the overnight study area will also be open to students. Most staff have already returned to campus.

The campus was closed on Thursday 12 May 2016 due to disruptions and protests. The university management condemns in the strongest possible terms, the acts of violence, vandalism, intimidation, and disruption of academic activities that marred the student protests on the Qwaqwa Campus last week. The university’s maintenance team is in the process of repairing damages arising from the protests.

Strict access to the campus and its amenities will be ensured, and students and staff must carry their university access cards with them at all times.
