University of Mpumalanga

The Lowveld Agricultural College is the identified seat for the New University in Mpumalanga. The site is located 5km north of the Nelspruit CDB on the R40 to White River and offers good regional accessibility.

The nature of the site for the New University in Mpumalanga stands in direct contrast to the inner city location of the University in the Northern Cape. The natural landscape, agricultural fields, undulating topography, waterways and vistas demand a different approach to the Design and Development Framework.
