Change the world

Nelson Mandela University is entering the second phase of rolling out a programme aimed at enabling the vast majority of students to have access to a computing device (a laptop).


As part of the first phase, Nelson Mandela University offered first-time entering NSFAS-funded students an opportunity to secure their own laptop, to be paid off over a period of 2 years. 

This offer has now been extended to all senior students, however a single payment of R4995 would be required for the laptop valued at about R6500.

You have two payment options:

  • Pay R4 995 to the ICT CopyTech Shop next to the Kraal at South Campus or at the SITS Centre at George Campus through your IntelliMali Card or
  • Pay R4 995 cash at the university cashiers into account X177-4156


Please bring your proof of payment receipt to either the ICT CopyTech Shop at South Campus or SITS Centre at George Campus to collect your laptop (while stocks last).
