The University has a total of 9 hostels; 4 for men and 5 for ladies, with a total bed capacity of 1184. Priority during the October 2021 intake shall be given to first-year students and students with disability and special needs, who have provided such information beforehand to the Dean of Students, The accommodation cost is KES 12,000 per person per semester payable to the University account. Please note that cash payments will not be accepted.

Due to the limited bed spaces within the university, the allocation will be applied online upon payment of full accommodation and at least half of the fee.  We, however, work closely with external hostels to ensure our students are accommodated in favorable conditions. For a detailed list of accredited external hostels see the list below.
