University of Nairobi

The University of Nairobi is the pioneer institution of university education in Kenya and the region. When it was founded in 1956, the University of Nairobi responded to the national, regional and Africa’s high level manpower training needs by developing and evolving strong, diversified academic programmes and specializations in basic sciences, applied sciences, technology, humanities, social sciences and the arts. In this effort, the location of the seven campuses of the University in the capital city has been an asset that has driven the university to become the busy hub and citadel of academic activity it is today. The university is proud of its distinguished record of achievements in teaching, research, development and consultancy while strategizing for a greater future as the centre of academic, research and professional excellence.
