Students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology have until this weekend to leave the campus of the University.
The decision was taken at an emergency meeting between school authorities and the Students Representative Council on Monday.
This is in line with a directive from the President, ordering that all universities should close down until further notice.
The SRC says that it will be providing buses to convey students.
They have advised students to patronize only accredited buses by the SRC.
It also adds that the accredited SRC buses will operate throughout the week so as students can meet the weekend deadline.
KNUST is not the only tertiary institution ordering its students to leave the campus.
Managements of the University of Health and Allied Sciences (UHAS) and the University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR) have asked their students to vacate the school premises.
