Khumalo said the SRC did not want the university to provide these at the expense of depriving poor students who cannot afford to pay for their studies.
“As the SRC, we want these funds to assist students to learn and register. We know there are issues around financial exclusion. We would want to consolidate the majority of our funds towards ensuring that students are registered and have a place to sleep,” he said.
Wits said in its Covid-19 vaccination policy it would ensure the university provided a safe and holistic learning and teaching environment for students and staff.
It said this would be beneficial for students whose programmes require them to be on campus for research and learning purposes.
“The university plans to reinvigorate the student experience in 2022 by enabling more social engagement on its precincts, through clubs, societies, and residence life, and by opening up more spaces for students to learn and socialise safely on site,” said the university.
