Accommodation

Internal Accommodation

It is the government policy that admissions into public universities should not pegged on available accommodation space. Of about 6500 students, the University can barely accommodate 152 ladies and 246 men, making the total available spaces to be 398. The Student Welfare Directorate is tasked with the allocation process. Room allocation for the University Hostels is exclusively reserved for the first year KUCCPS (previously known as JAB) students to give them a soft landing. They are required to move out of the Hostels upon completion of the first year.

Allocation is based on first come first served basis while students with special conditions such as medical, disability, physical challenges etc. are also considered. The cost of accommodation is Ksh. 5,000 per student per semester.

 

External Accommodation

It is the University policy to work closely with investors who provide accommodation to the DeKUT students. About 90% of the University’s student population is accommodated off campus. The University, through the Student Welfare Directorate, has an elaborate system of identifying and accrediting private hostels subject to meeting certain criteria set by the relevant government departments. So far, the University has accredited thirteen (13) private hostels in different parts of Nyeri Town.

The following are the accredited hostels.
