Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (the former University of Port Elizabeth or UPE) became a long-cherished reality in 1964, when the first and only dual-medium university in the country came into being. Since its inception the University has grown rapidly from 320 students to nearly 6,000. The main campus of Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University enjoys a unique location in the Summerstrand section of Port Elizabeth, four miles from the city center, in a nature reserve surrounded by the sea and coastal dunes. NMMU is an engaged and people-centered university that serves the needs of its diverse communities by contributing to sustainable development through excellent academic courses, research and service delivery.
