Chaos erupted at the University of KwaZulu-Natal's (UKZN) Westville campus early on Wednesday.

Videos of students wearing balaclavas and with T-shirts covering their faces as they faced off with university security personnel circulated on social media.

A UKZN official said members of public order policing unit had been deployed to the campus to restore calm.

In a statement on Wednesday, UKZN said the academic programme would continue despite interruptions.

Students reportedly remain aggrieved by issues surrounding historic debt and financial exclusion.

This is a developing story.
