The campus of the University of Macau on the Chinese mainland will be exempt from the restrictions of the Great Firewall, the university’s media officer confirmed to the Global Times Wednesday.

The Internet services on the new campus will be provided by Macao companies, the media officer, surnamed Fok, told the Global Times in an email.

The university is moving its campus from the special administrative region to Hengqin Island, Zhuhai, Guangdong Province, and the new campus will be available in September with more than 10,000 students to be relocated.

“Anything students can access on the Macao campus will be accessible in the new one,” Fok said.

Fang Binxing, the Great Firewall’s founder, said he was not informed of this.

An insider told the Global Times since the university is under the administration of Macao and Hengqin is a special economic zone, it is reasonable to follow Macao rules.

A student from the university also said it would be inconvenient for his graduate dissertation if students could not browse certain websites.

Construction of the campus started in December 2009 and it will be 20 times larger than its headquarters in Macao.
