Free wifi access for students

2016-10-13 06:00

Nelson Mandela University students are reminded that they can access the university’s online learning portal for free from any of the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality’s 17 public facilities equipped with wifi access.

The e-connect wifi project enables students to do research for assignments or even online tests from certain municipal libraries and customer care centres.

“As part of the municipality’s memorandum of understanding with the university, any student who needs to access the NMU online learning portal is able to do so via the metro’s wifi infrastructure,” said councillor Dean Biddulph, Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality Member of the Mayoral Committee (MMC).

“All NMU students who do not have access to internet at home would be able to login into the university’s learning sites to do their research and online tests at no cost at metro libraries and customer care centres.”

  • Free wifi access will be available locally at the Uitenhage Customer Care Centre and the Uitenhage Library.
