Situation update: 28 September 2016
Please note: This communication replaces all previous communiqué’s on the situation at TUT
The Tshwane University of Technology this morning resolved to extend the recess period at all campuses. The decision was taken due to ongoing disruptions at its campuses.
From Thursday, 29 September 2016, the official extended recess period will be applicable to all TUT campuses. The 4th term will commence on 10 October 2016.
Tests scheduled to be written at these campuses between 26 and 30 September, will be rescheduled to be written after 10 October 2016. More information on the rescheduling will be communicated to the staff and students by the Deans of Faculties.
As is the practice, leave will automatically be deducted for all academic staff for the duration of the extended recess. Any academic staff members who do not want to take leave at this time, should please reverse their leave with Human Resources and Transformation.
Support staff must report for duty during the recess period. Those who have not applied for leave during the extended recess period, and who would like to take leave during this period, should obtain the necessary permission from their superiors.
An important reminder to academic staff is the Academic Excellence Awards, scheduled for Thursday, 29 September 2016. The event will take place as planned and all nominees, Deans and Heads of Departments are urged to attend the function in numbers.
Although the University recognises the right of students to participate in protest action, it is regrettable that the current national drive for fee free education has caused the level of disruption that resulted in the suspension of academic activities.

The survey will run until 31 October 2016. All students are urged to participate in the anonymous and voluntary survey. It will be most valuable in order to assist LIS to determine needs of students and evaluate services offered at TUT.
A link and QR code to the survey can be found on posters in all ERCs and I-Centres. It will only take a few minutes to complete the survey.
