Change the world


In keeping with the level 4 lockdown decisions announced by Minister of Higher Education, Science and Innovation Blade Nzimande last week, there can be no campus-based learning activity at Nelson Mandela University or any other universities or colleges at present. This also means on-campus residences remain closed.

Unfortunately, no exceptions can be made in this regard due to infection control, residence readiness and control of communal gatherings. Any form of disregard to the rulings may expose the university to risk of closure.

Any change to the present status will be communicated.

In the interim, the University is working hard to ensure all the necessary safety precautions and other preparations are in place towards an anticipated phased return to campus of staff and students.
