The Open University of Sri Lanka (OUSL) will be closed until further, Vice-Chancellor Professor S.A. Ariadurai said today.

Prof. Ariadurai said the University was closed on Friday (January 22) after several students attempted to forcibly enter two lecture rooms. The University’s Council had taken a decision to close the University until further notice, he said.

“The decision as taken as there was a tense situation between the students and the staff. Exams and lectures have all been postponed until further notice,” he said.  

Meanwhile, OUSL Student Unity Convener Amila Sandaruwan said the tense situation arose after staff had attempted to enforce a new disciplinary system in the University.

“We had an argument with the lecturers and staff members when they tried to take away some of our belongings,” he said.(DS)

    It is typical for a university to be closed while the United National Party is in office.

    Internal Memorandum to faculty can be worded like this:"Open university that remained open is now closed indefinitely. If Open University opens after closing and again closes, then the open University will be re-named to Closed University permanently for those who are open minded and will remain closed for the close-minded".

    University is becoming a breeding ground for protests, strict rules should be adopted, if not we will be producing indiscipline graduates.
