The Panepistimio metro station will close at 10 a.m. on Thursday by order of the police due to a scheduled students' march in central Athens.

The trains will pass through the station without making a stop, state-run news agency ANA-MPA reported.

University students are protesting a bill introduced in Parliament on Wednesday which, among others, incorporates stricter security measures in campuses and foresees the creation of an on-campus police force.

Protesters will gather at Propylaia ahead of the march.
