University of KZN postpones its opening of campuses

January 4, 2021

The university was scheduled to reopen today.

The University of KZN has postponed the reopening of their campuses for the year. They were scheduled to open today, 4 January. However, after the President’s address to the nation and the move to level 3 of the lockdown, UKZN has put a halt to these plans. The reason for this is that KZN is a hotspot and the university does not want to risk infections spreading from their reopening. They have postponed their commencement date to 18 January 2021.
