The University of Zululand or UniZulu is the only comprehensive tertiary educational institution north of the Tugela River in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

Its new status is in accordance with South Africa’s National Plan for Higher Education aimed at eradicating inequity and costly duplication. As a result, UniZulu offers career-focused programs as well as a limited number of relevant university degree courses that have been structured with potential employees and employers in mind.

The university has extended its existing links with a wide array of tertiary educational institutions in the United States and in Europe by establishing partnerships with the University of Mississippi, Radford University, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, and Chicago State University.

UniZulu pursues an agenda for scholarly investigation in response to social problems, with community service being systematically integrated into the formal curriculum.
