The University

St. Paul’s University is an ecumenical private chartered university founded in 1903. It is strategically located in the lush Kiambu County along Nairobi-Limuru Route A, 30kms from Nairobi, next to Jumuia Conference and Country Home with other campuses in Nairobi, Nakuru and Machakos.
It is in a cool and serene environment that is very conducive for the learning process. The University is an internationally recognized private institution that provides education to over 6000 students at the graduate and undergraduate levels. The Christian Principles and perspectives on life and a student body and faculty that represent different countries provide a diversity that enriches learning and your stay at the University.


After meeting the set requirements, St. Paul’s was registered as a private University by the Commission for Higher Education, thus formally allowing it to offer its own degree programmes. The University was awarded its charter on September 14, 2007 by His Excellency Hon. Mwai Kibaki, C.G.H., M.P., President and Commander in- Chief of the Defense Forces of the Republic of Kenya.
