A heated protest outside the gates of the UWI Teaching and Learning Centre this morning, as campus security locked out protesting law students.
Scores of students gathered to request a meeting with campus principal professor Brian Copeland, to discuss the impending move to the UWI South Debe campus.
Copeland was at the time addressing UWI's St Augustine annual council meeting.
However, when the students arrived the gates were closed off, tied with wires and rope, prompting students to begin chanting and shouting their frustrations.
Students say they have for years been unable to attain a meeting to discuss the Debe move.
A majority of both students and staff at the law faculty have expressed concerns over the move.
Professor Copeland agreed to meet with the students at the end of the council meeting.
