Management claims there have been threats made by the SRC, which they take seriously.

There were violent protests at the university in the past two weeks, in which one student died after being shot by university security.

DUT's executive committee says it was holding meetings with the SRC but was not willing to put the security of its students and staff at risk.

The campuses will remain closed until further notice.
