In response to potential risks, access to protests was limited to campus ID holders after reports suggested possible outside involvement.
Despite these restrictions, local residents joined protests outside the university gates to raise awareness for the conflict’s impact on Palestinian civilians. Some of these protests have become violent, with a student assaulted while displaying Pro-Israel posters. This has added to the discomfort of many students, with some choosing to cover their faces during demonstrations.
The conflict on campus has spilled over into the university’s finances, with donations potentially being affected as some donors take issue with the ongoing events.
