The Nelson Mandela University formerly known as Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU), has officially changed its name. The university said in a statement that as from 7 October 2016, in accordance with GN1222 GG40334/7-10-2016, the university will be known as the Nelson Mandela University. The statement added that the university launched the new name on 20 July.

The university said that in the interim, it traded on the old name, hence, the delay in correspondence relating to the name change of the university. In the statement the university pointed out that the new name should be used with all matters related to the university, whether it be for qualifications associated with the university, relationships with the university, agreements entered into with the university, or any other form of association with the university.

The university pointed out that regardless of the name change, the terms and conditions on all contracts, agreements and other instruments, which form the basis of any association with the university, remains unchanged.
