Nelson Mandela University launched its institutional Naming and Renaming Project on 27 May 2019, with the initial phase being the launch and unveiling of eight renamed student residences.

The institutional Naming and Renaming Project is a critical part of the University’s transformation and identity building process, and flows from the launch of the University’s new name and identity in 2017.

The University name change provided an enabling environment and an opportunity to pro-actively build social cohesion and contribute to the transformation and decolonising project at the University.
