On 8 January 2013, upon recommendation of the Commission for University Education, the government elevated Chuka University College to university status. It became the ninth public university in Kenya.

Chuka University’s history started in September 2004, when Egerton University opened the Eastern Campus College at Ndagani. The Campus College was upgraded to the University College of Egerton University in 2007. Eight years later, the University College witnessed tremendous growth in infrastructure, staff and student numbers, making it ready to advance to a fully-fledged university.

Chuka University (CU) is a chartered public university in the Republic of Kenya and is located on the serene eastern slopes of the snow-capped Mt. Kenya, approximately 186 km from Nairobi.

With an enviable academic reputation of more than 10 years, the University provides first-class and affordable education to students from Kenya and the international community. Renowned for offering an outstanding and rewarding student experience, CU’s consistently impressive rate of graduate employability has proven to be a worthwhile investment.

The current student population stands at 13,000 with 500 staff members.
