Dear colleagues and students

After careful consideration, the executive of the University of Cape Town has taken the decision to close campus tomorrow, 7 June 2017. This step is taken as a precaution in light of the decision by the Western Cape Education Department to close primary and secondary schools. We are also mindful of the advice by the traffic authorities to keep road travel to a minimum during the expected storm.

We do not take this decision lightly. We do so to minimise the risk to students and staff of being outdoors in severe weather. There are predictions of extremely high winds, cold temperatures and the possibility of flooding to some areas, which may cause damage to infrastructure and is likely to create traffic delays. We are also mindful of the many parents on campus whose children will not be able to attend school tomorrow. While we cannot predict exactly what effect the storm will have on campus, we want to reduce the risk to all and assist the City of Cape Town in minimising elements of risk on public roads.

All staff members should ensure that they discuss the issue with their direct line manager and make the necessary arrangements. Students should be in contact with their academic department or faculty to make the necessary arrangements to ensure that affected classes and work are caught up in time.
