THE NUL GATE THAT “KNOWS” EACH STUDENT BY THE NAME

The automated gate was going to cost the university a gigantic M3, 000,000 if outside companies were contracted ! But the National University of Lesotho (NUL) engineers delivered it for M 100,000! No kidding! If you are a student or staff at the NUL, the gate system uses barcodes and RFID on your identity cards to give you access to the premises.

THE LAUNCH OF THE NUL INNOVATION HUB

What a day it was! After years of thinking, designing, experimenting, testing and evaluating, the National University of Lesotho (NUL) launched the much-awaited NUL Innovation Hub. Three buildings were opened by His Majesty and Chancellor, King Letsie III, on the day. These were not the buildings containing laboratory products anymore. They were the buildings of businesses!

That is because NUL means business these days.

"THANK YOU NUL," SAY AFRICAN ECONOMICS STUDENTS

This year, Masters students from 7 African countries descended on the National University of Lesotho (NUL).
