University President Minouche Shafik initially set a midnight deadline Wednesday for them to vacate the premises before the school “considers alternative options” for removing the tent city.

However, just after midnight, Columbia University’s Students for Justice in Palestine posted on X that they had abandoned negotiations with the school “until there is a written commitment according to which the administration will not release the New York police or the National Guard on its territory. students.”

President Mike Johnson is scheduled to hold a news conference at the university Wednesday after meeting with Jewish students.
