About Kisii University

kisii university

Kisii University Overview

Kisii University was founded in 1965 as a Primary Teachers Training College on a 61 acre land that was donated by the County Council of Gusii.
The College continued up to 1983 when it was upgraded to a Secondary Teachers College to offer Diploma programmes. Over the years, the College trained very many teachers who got posted to primary schools in different parts of the country. Many of the teachers rose to ranks of head teachers and others got promotions to work in various educational institutions.

The Government of Kenya mandated Egerton University to take over the College as its campus in 1994. It should be noted that Kisii Campus was one of the earliest campuses to be created in Kenya by the then Head of State, H.E. Daniel arap Moi. In 1999, the Faculty of Commerce established Bachelor of Business and Management as its first degree programmes within the campus to run alongside Post Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE), which was phased out in the year 2001. On 23rd August 2007, Kisii University College was established through a Government Legal Notice No.163 of 2007 as a Constituent College of Egerton University.

On 6th February 2013, Kisii University was awarded a Charter to become the 13th public university in Kenya.
Since being elevated to a University College, the institution has expanded rapidly in terms of academic programmes, student enrolment and staff. The students are distributed over various campuses including the Main Campus, Kisii Town Campuses, Kitale Campus,  Keroka Campus, Nyamira Campus, Ogembo Campus, Kisumu Campus. Eldoret Campus and Isebania Campus.
