The University of Nairobi shall hold its 10th Open day on 18th -19th February 2021. The Open day provides the University community with the opportunity to showcase and market its programmes.




The University has created an interactive mini- website    to enable us to interact with prospective students and stakeholders.  Each College shall be allocated sufficient virtual booths for exhibiting their programs. The virtual booths have provisions for meetings and chatting with external stakeholders.

A meeting shall be convened next week to sensitize users on how to use the website.










The virtual opening ceremony will take place on 18th February 2021 at 8.30 am. Please register here to attend and also extend the invitation to your partners, schools, relatives and friends.
