The Reformed Church University (RCU) was formed out of the Charter given to the Reformed Church in Zimbabwe (RCZ) by the Zimbabwe Council for Higher Education (ZIMCHE) in 2010. This gave the Church the opportunity to start laying down concrete milestones towards the ultimate opening of our new University in 2012.
In 2018, The Reformed Church University moved from Morgenster Mission to its main campus which is 7km from Masvingo town along Bulawayo-Mashava road. . The university also has a satellite campus at RCU Teaching and Learning Centre stand number 3932 Jabavhu Drive highfield Harare.
