Office of The Dean of Students
Welcome to Kenya Highlands University a serene environment that provides you with an opportunity to discover your potential. You made the best decision to choose KHU. For those who haven’t made up that choice, you are welcomed to do so. Being a learning institution, we have and will continue to endeavor to provide the best for all our students who choose to be part of us. 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.
Unlike many other places, Kenya Highlands University provides good team leadership and mentorship to 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. In other words the University lives to its dream of being “a home away from home”
The University has a Code of Conduct which every student has to familiarize with. The code is meant to ensure that we maintain our core values as an institution but also provide a conducive environment for all. Remember you are here for a short time depending on the program you are undertaking. You have a responsibility to maintain and leave a good legacy.
Welcome again to Kenya Highlands University, “a home away from home” for the best learning experience
