St. Paul's University is an ecumenical private chartered university founded in 1903. It is strategically located in the lush Kiambu County along Nairobi-Limuru Route A, 30kms from Nairobi, next to Jumuia Conference and Country Home. It is in a cool and serene environment that is very conducive for the learning process.
The University is an internationally recognized private institution that provides education to over 3000 students at the graduate and undergraduate levels. The Christian Principles and perspectives on life and a student body and faculty that represent different countries provide a diversity that enriches learning and your stay at the University.
St. Paul's has a long-standing reputation, which is known and respected for providing high quality training. Over the years we have trained theologians and pastors for service in the Christian Churches. In various parts of Africa many Church leaders, such as Bishops, Moderators, General Secretaries and even Archbishops have been trained at St. Paul's. With time other programmes including Business, Communication, ICT and Development oriented have been introduced so as to increase our impact with many of our graduates taking up positions of leadership within a relatively short time.
After meeting the set requirements, St. Paul's was registered as a private University by the Commission for Higher Education, thus formally allowing it to offer its own degree programmes. The University was awarded its charter on September 14, 2007 by His Excellency Hon. Mwai Kibaki, C.G.H., M.P., President and Commander in- Chief of the Defense Forces of the Republic of Kenya.
