Welcome to Matabeleland North Regional Campus in Matabeleland North Province, the hub of tourism, wildlife and mining in Zimbabwe. The province has a total population of 749 017 people (i.e. 48% are males while 52% are females). It also covers two of Zimbabwe's premier tourist attractions, namely, the Hwange National Park and the mighty Victoria Falls on the Zambezi River. Matabeleland North is a predominantly rural province and Zimbabwe Open University Matabeleland North region is meant to provide university education through distance teaching and open learning to all those who reside in its seven districts, namely, Lupane, Hwange, Binga Mguza, Bubi, Tsholotsho and Nkayi. There are a reasonable number of secondary schools in the province and several local languages spoken which include Ndebele, Tonga, Nambiya, Nyanja and Shona. This cultural diversity gives ZOU students in the region a good exposure which is a niche in their studies.


Currently, the Regional Offices are located in Hwange which is somehow unsuitable for most of our students who have to travel very long distances to attend weekend tutorials or access Regional services. Thus, due to its current location, it is not able to serve students from other districts as they prefer to go to Bulawayo. It is envisaged that the Region will eventually re-locate to Lupane which has now been declared by Government as the Provincial Capital for Matabeleland North.
