WiFi, software and emails


About WiFi and emails

We live in a time during which the world revolves around the internet, smartphones, apps, and digital communication. You probably find the mere thought of having to survive without these things frightening.

To leave you feeling as comfortable as possible on any of the three campuses of the North-West University, we invest millions of Rands in the latest technology each year – all within your reach. One example of this is the free Wifi available on the greatest parts of all of our campuses. We are proud to say that the NWU’s internet speed is the second-fastest of all universities in South Africa!
