DeKUT Directorate of Student Welfare

Better Life through Technology


In order to promote the students’ welfare within their areas of residence, the University management has established six segments referred to as sectors. For each residential sector, the management has appointed a warden to take care of the students’ welfare in as follows.

  1. Dr. Esther Nthiga                    Nyeri Town
  2. Ms. Penina Chege                   Catholic/Kahawa Ridge Hostels
  3. Ms. Majory Nyaga                  Ladies in all Campuses
  4. Mr. Muchiri Njoki                  Show View/Nyaribo
  5. Mr. Richard Koskei                Nyeri View/Mathari/Embassy
  6. Mr. Dennis Cheruiyot             Internal Hostels

The principal role of the wardens is to mentor students in their respective sectors to enable them develop socially, as individuals and as a group. The aim of the wardenship system is to expose all the students to campus life and experience, especially those living off campus, thereby fostering a sense of belonging among the students. This system promotes cohesion, and integration among students. It has also enhanced positive behavior and discipline among the students, which has consequently improved the relationship between students and the community.

The wardenship has played an important role in increasing student participation in sports and games. It has also helped in empowering the female students through the ‘Empowered Me’ Program. The ladies receive mentorship from the female lecturers and other members of staff.
