Load-shedding during NAF

Good day,


In light of recent publications on social media, you may have seen the revised schedules for load shedding during the National Arts Festival. This mail is to clarify the impact for Rhodes University.

Between Monday 29th of June and Thursday 16th July, the load shedding schedule as attached is reversed for Rhodes University, thus all facilities on “CITY 1” which is largely the academic functions will only experience minor interruptions of up to 15 mins due to switching arrangements, and instead all facilities on “CITY 2”  will experience the load shedding.

Between Friday 17th of July and Friday the 31st of July,  the arrangements revert back and only “CITY 2” which is largely the resident facilities will be affected by load shedding and “CITY 1” will remain unaffected.

For any clarification kindly please contact myself.

 Kind regards
