On behalf of the Moi University Senate, Council, Management and the entire Moi University fraternity, I take this opportunity to welcome you to this Institution. Additionally, I welcome you to the Moi University Website Platform which expedites communication and sharing of information, knowledge and best practices within the University and with all our stakeholders. I thank you for taking time out to visit our Website and share in our Vision.


Moi University was established in 1984 by an Act of Parliament (Moi University Act, 1984) as the second public University in Kenya. The University is located in Kesses, Uasin Gishu County, 35 kilometers from Eldoret Town, and 310 kilometers Northwest of Nairobi, the Capital City of Kenya.



The University has expanded tremendously over the past decade giving birth to 8 fully fledged Universities namely, Maseno University, Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology (MMUST), Maasai Mara University (MMaraU), University of Kabianga (UoK), University of Eldoret (UoE), Karatina University, Garissa University and Rongo University, and this can be attributed to the commitment of the entire Moi University fraternity, government investment, strategic partnerships, and the visionary leadership of the University Management and Council. These achievements are a testament to the resilience and fortitude of every faculty and staff member who enabled change at a pace and on a scale never experienced before in the country.


Moi University serves about 40,000 students via on campus and off campus courses in 232 degree programmes offered by the Institution’s 15 Schools. Students come to Moi University from 17 countries in the region and abroad and all the 47 Counties in Kenya. To fully derive the educational benefits of a diverse Campus, every area of the University is committed to actively pursuing an inclusive environment particularly in relation to students with disabilities. The University leads in providing all the benefits of a personal, close-knit community, large enough to engage in cutting-edge research and offer our students a comprehensive range of rigorous academic programmes.


The University is proud of its great contributions made in higher education, research and extension and, right now, wherever you go there is always a Moi University alumnus either in front or behind you.


I invite you to browse our Website to see our strengths and advantages. They are too numerous to catalogue here. You may access our programmes, courses and events at architecturally celebrated Campuses, designed to make us available and accessible for students interested in opportunities for open, continuing, amalgam and international education.
I hope you enjoy and benefit from your visit to the University, whether it is through this Website or physical visit to the Institution in person.


Please do not hesitate to contact us with your questions and comments. If you think they are appropriately addressed to me, you may e-mail me directly at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
