Vantharumoolai and Batticaloa campuses of the Eastern University had been closed indefinitely from today due to an unsettled condition prevailing at the University, Deputy Vice Chancellor Dr. K. E. Karunakaran said.
All students had been asked by the University to leave the campus by noon tomorrow.
The students in all hostels were asked to vacate their rooms and handover their keys to the respective wardens or sub-wardens on departure.
