MANAGEMENT and University of KwaZulu-Natal student leaders met on Monday morning ahead of the announcement on fee adjustments.

University spokesman Lesiba Seshoka said management did not expect any protests as all campuses were closed to students until Tuesday.

On Friday, the university said it would deploy extra security personnel on all campuses from Monday.

Vice-chancellor Albert van Jaarsveld told staff and students there would be strict access control on all campuses.

"UKZN identification will be required for all staff and students seeking access to any of the campuses.

"All staff and students should carry UKZN identification cards visibly on their person at all times."

Van Jaarsveld urged the university community to remain vigilant about their personal safety and security at all times.

"Anyone who notices anything that may raise security concerns‚ is urged to report this to risk management services on their respective campus."

The university was rocked by two weeks of protests at its Westville‚ Pietermaritzburg and Howard College campuses at the beginning of the month.

Violence resulted in the academic programme being suspended until Tuesday.
