All State universities have been given the green light by government to reopen on June 1, but only final year students will be on campus with the rest using e-learning platforms.
The tertiary colleges had been closed in March as part of a raft of measures to implement the national lockdown.
The lockdown regulations have since been eased by President Emmerson Mnangagwa and most companies in the industry and commerce sectors have reopened although the informal sector remains closed.
This week all State universities had submitted their reopening plans to the Higher Education ministry.
Education is for the living, we gave a specific order to universities to ensure they put systems in place that will see a safe environment for students.
