The police and the university's risk management services forced the students out of the campus before
The students scattered around the university as the police began their chase.
University spokesman, Lesiba Sishoka, said 13 students had been arrested for contravening a high court interdict prohibiting students from protests and gatherings.
"The protesting students made several attempts to disrupt lectures on the campus.
"However, lectures on all five of the university's campuses are continuing and security has been beefed up," he said.

At the Westville campus, protesting students apparently barricaded the main entrance with a burning fridge and damaged three university vehicles, the risk management building and electrical equipment at one of the residences on Tuesday night.
Management said students should raise their concerns through the appropriate channels, and said they were in talks with SRC representatives.
Students at the Edgewood campus, who did want to be named, said they had been refused registration because they owed fees to the university.
They threatened not to vote in the general election if Higher Education Minister Blade Nzimande did not intervene.
