Kipkelion Campus Strategic Plan


newMembers of KHU Management Board visited the vast acre of land at the Kipkelion constituency which has been under the ownership of the University for the past 10 years. The land stretches across a fertile 90 acre hill side.

The main agenda of the visit was to chart the way forward for the piece of land development-wise. Previously and also most recently the farm has been used for planting maize crop due to its high mineral content rich soil.

Alongside several development schemes, the management team also discussed ways in which different structures/buildings would be allocated.

A major setback that the Kipkelion land has had, is the lack of proper and adequate roads to the actual site. Accessibility was also a topic on the agenda.

Squatters in the area have also been a major deterrent to progress in the Kipkelion land. A number of ways were discussed on how to peacefully evacuate the squatters in that area.

We believe in the whole development of our students ie spiritually, physically, academically, socially, amongst others.

As you join the University, it will be prudent to note that the environment requires you to set personal goals and make best choices that range from making friends, choosing the career that suites you, knowing when to say NO or yes depending on the issues at hand. The University environment is highly integrated with students from all over the country and others from outside the borders. With this comes different attitudes, behaviors which entirely depend on cultural upbringing. As much as we have to tolerate one another, you will be required to only choose the best and say NO to any vice that may surface. Saying NO to things that interfere with your education negatively is not a weakness but strength.

Sporting facilities are in plenty and students have a variety of sports to choose from. Some that are common include, football, volleyball, handball, basketball, Athletics, a variety of indoor games amongst others.

On accommodation, the University has hostels for ladies and gents which are separated from each other. The men don’t share the hostels with the ladies. This has helped a great deal to maintain good morals amongst our students.

The lecturers and other staff members are readily available to help any student who requires any help. This includes career guidance, emotional issues, and relationships amongst others.
