Statement on communications operator sending SIM cards to new students

16 Aug 2016

To new Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University students and their parents:

A number of new students recently let us know that they received letters that included a China Unicom SIM card and instructions about activating an information card for new 2016 students at XJTLU.

The University would like to make it clear that it has neither provided such new student information card nor authorised any companies or institutions to provide such service. New XJTLU students are free to select the mobile phone and internet services of any vendor they choose and their decision will not affect their campus lives.

To those companies who illegally access and use XJTLU students’ personal information, pretending to be the University to carry out business promotions for profit, the University considers this to seriously damage XJTLU’s reputation. XJTLU will pursue this matter and maintains the right to hold responsible under the law those companies or relevant people engaged in such activity.
