@Mashia1950, my man, is it easy to have Turfloop Campus and difficult to have Turfloop University? How do you explain yourself? Is Turfloop not the area where the University is, which is all what the author is saying here?

@setlaboswana We have University of Limpopo _ Turfloop Campus that's what it is and it can never be what you want it to be. Turfloop its just the area where the campus is, not the name of the University.

@Mashia1950, Turfloop University simply means Turfloop based University or University situated in Turfloop. We cannot attach any other meaning to the two words. It is not uncommon to hear words such as a Johannesburg based University or a Johannesburg University, so on and on.

@setlaboswana I still disagree there is no such Turfloop University, but Turf-campus.

@Mashia1950, Turfloop University is the University of Limpopo blogger. Turfloop University is not the same as saying University of Turfloop. The former is correct and the latter is incorrect.

Point of correction editor, we don't have Turfloop University, its University of Limpopo.
