Legal establishment: On 1 January 2004, the new Unisa officially came into being through the merger of the former University of South Africa and Technikon Southern Africa with the incorporation of the Vista University Distance Education Campus, Vudec.
Inaugural meeting of the Interim Council: On 5 January 2004, the Interim Council approved the structure of the academic units within the new Unisa, resulting in the creation of five new colleges.
Official launch: The new Unisa was officially launched on 28 January 2004 at a function attended by 500 guests. The keynote speaker was Prof Kader Asmal, then Minister of Education.
