All students must book a space on the Booking App and complete the Health Check App before visiting any Unisa office

If you need to access any Unisa office, you are required to make a booking in advance. NO student will be allowed access to any campus without a booking a space or completing the Health Check App.

Students arriving at Unisa premises must ensure that they have completed the health check application at https://healthcheck.higherhealth.ac.za/ and that they wear a mask at all times on Unisa premises.



Current students

Register on the Unisa booking app to book a spot before you visit one of Unisa’s campuses or centres.

The Unisa campus access booking app for registered students, which is web-based and can be accessed via a browser or phone, is now available at http://www.unisa.ac.za/access

1. You must first register as a user. Click on "Sign Up" and follow the instructions. You must register with your myLife e-mail account and a password of your choice (ie you do not simply log in with your current Unisa credentials).

2. Once you have registered, a "New Unisa access registration" e-mail will be sent to your myLife e- account. Verify your registration and then click on "Sign In" to book a visit to a Unisa campus.

3. Once you have registered, you can sign-in using the first tab ("Sign In").

4. When a booking is accepted, take a screenshot of the confirmation message and present this together with your student card as proof of your booking at a campus and building entrance.

Please note the following:

  • A booking is specific to a single campus and building in one of two time slots: 08:00-11:30 or 12:00-15:30.
  • The number of booking slots available is regulated, and a campus or building may be closed at short notice for disinfection after a positive Covid-19 case.
  • In order to meet Covid-19 regulations, some campuses and/or buildings may not be open to students.
  • When you make a booking, you must confirm that you do not have any Covid-19 symptoms at the time of booking. For this reason, a booking can only be done a day in advance.
  • If you do not have a booking, you will not be allowed access to a campus and building.
  • At the campus entrance, your student card will be scanned by a security officer. Your temperature will then be measured and recorded. If it falls within the allowable limit, you will be allowed access to campus.
  • Your card may also be scanned before access to a building is allowed.
  • Please do not book to visit a campus or building if you do not plan to visit it. Please be considerate and allow other students the opportunity to visit a campus. If you cannot honour your booking, please delete your booking.
  • While the app is accurate, we suggest that, where possible, you take a screenshot or make a print-out of your booking.
