CHARLES Sturt University (CSU) will begin welcoming back some students from June 9 following campus shutdowns amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The return to face-to-face classes for some students will mark the end of 11-weeks of online classes.
CSU's gradual return plan will see students gradually return to class during the next few months, with all students to be back by November 13.
In a statement released by CSU on Wednesday it said this plan was to "ensure we deliver key face-to-face learning and research activities, with the appropriate safety measures in place".
"The specific cohorts that will return are approximately 26 subjects in the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Arts and Education."
All CSU staff will be able to work from campus from July 13 with management approval, as long as physical distancing is in place.
The majority of higher degree by research and other research activities are continuing on campus with approval.
While campus services including food and beverage, library services, Student Central and counter services will undergo a phased return with limited services in June and July and increasing services in August, with appropriate hygiene and cleaning in place.
Library collections in the Learning Commons on campuses remain closed, however library services will continue online.
"The university supports the advice of the Department of Health and is sharing this with staff and students along with all other relevant information and advice," CSU said.
"The health and safety of our staff, students and communities, both domestically and internationally, is of paramount concern to the university and we will continue to liaise with our partners and appropriate bodies to assist in our response.
"We expect that by November 16, all campus activities will resume, as long as there are no COVID-19 outbreaks."
CSU said during the phased return, physical distancing of 1.5 metres must be adhered to and staff and students would be encouraged to download the COVIDSafe app.
