Change the world



As an update to this morning’s text message, Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University will remain closed today.

This means that all activities, bar essential services, will not resume for the rest of the day.

During this time, Management will continue to engage with students to find a lasting solution towards ensuring that the academic programme continues, even while these students heed a call for free education for the poor.  

Professional support services will need to advise their teams on the way forward in providing essential services in support of those students who are living on campus. This refers specifically to protection services, cleaning, campus health and catering services.

All other employees are expected to work from home and be on call.

These are uncertain times, not only for NMMU but the sector generally. We recognize the inconvenience caused to our staff and students.

We will continue to update you.
