Message from the Principal

Prof. Jackson K. Kwanza

Welcome to Karen Campus, the Premier Campus of Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology!

Karen Campus offers a broad spectrum of market-oriented programmes and it is the place to enroll for both young and old. We offer programmes in Law, IT and Computing, Applied Sciences, Human Resource Management and Business at Diploma, Degree and Postgraduate levels. These programmes run throughout the year on both fulltime and part-time bases. All our programmes are Senate approved programmes and teaching and examination are as defined by the JKUAT senate regulations.

Our campus is well equipped with state of the art ICT equipment and physical infrastructure that includes a modern library, modern computer laboratories and wireless internet connectivity that guarantees high-speed internet connectivity to both students and staff. We also have a strong team of qualified members of staff drawn from our mother institution and from other reputable institutions of higher learning in Kenya. All staff members who teach in our programmes must be approved by the University Senate.

Our students engage in various sporting activities within the campus and participate in both local and international sporting activities. There are also a variety of clubs and societies which students can join to keep them busy while out of class.

Karen campus is strategically located in Karen, deep inside the Langata neighborhood of Nairobi city yet very accessible from the city center. It enjoys a quiet serene environment with an unmatched atmosphere for serious studying away from the hustle and bustle of the commercial city.

You are all welcome to join our programmes at the JKUAT Karen campus!!!!
