JOHANNESBURG - Dozens of students remain stranded outside the University of Limpopo tonight after management decided to close the institution indefinitely.

Protests at the campus began on Monday, and were marked by clashes between private security, police and students.

At least three students were arrested during last night's round of violence.

Management gave students until 5pm this afternoon to evacuate campus residences after fresh protests this morning.

One student, a Zimbabwean national says he has nowhere to go at this time of the night and the university has not provided alternative accommodation for those in a similar situation.

"Whether you are male or female, there's no way you can find accommodation. It's obvious you have to know someone, and if you don't, anyone you can't travel at this time."
