Johannesburg - Wits University management has urged all health science students to register online after on-site registration was disrupted by the SRC on Monday.

In a statement, Wits management said they would suspend "face-to-face" registration for Monday and Tuesday in Hall 29.

The closure would affect ‎students registering for health sciences, engineering and built environment.

The university said registration would continue online until Friday January 15.

"All other students will also still be able to register online, as per the normal schedule," the statement read.

Students who are unable to register online were urged to call 011 717 1888, which would be active from 15:00 on Monday afternoon.

"Please note that there are large volumes of calls coming through, so if you have problems with your telephonic registration, please e-mail registrar@wits.ac.za," the university said.

The Wits SRC had demanded that no students be financially excluded in 2016.
