Role of third parties

The University recognizes that it has no jurisdiction over third parties. However, all third parties providing services to the NMMU will uphold and respect all who work at, study at or visit the NMMU, or participate in any of the institution’s activities at any location other than the NMMU. The TM&E office will keep a record of complaints and forward such complaints to the relevant offices that make use of the third parties, as well as to the relevant employer for action. The University retains its right to bar the third parties from its premises and/or reconsider any further commercial transactions with such service providers.
