THE situation at the Durban University of Technology after week-long protests by students hangs in the balance.
Yesterday the students representatives council (SRC) threatened that students might still go on strike.
The SRC is unhappy that some students have not found accommodation after university management "promised to resolve the issue".
Last Thursday students and management had released a joint statement saying all issues had been resolved.
But now it appears that the students are still unhappy.
Yesterday SRC project manager Gwajo Hadebe said they had done everything in their power but some issues remained unresolved.
He said some students still needed accommodation and were forced to rely on empty offices and friends for shelter.
"There are 1500 students, including first-year students, who still need accommodation and we can't have such a situation. The possibility of a strike is high," Hadebe said.
He said students who struggle financially would only be assisted once they met the National Student Fund Aid Scheme requirements.
"As part of the NFSAS national act, students who pass with a rating of less than 60percent cannot be assisted, and it is beyond our control to help such students," Hadebe said.
The representatives met university deputy vice-chancellor Nqabomzi Gawe, to whom they forwarded their concerns about the accommodation issue.
A statement released by the university said the housing department had limited accommodation and some students had not applied yet now wanted accommodation.
