Thank you for your interest to study with us.

St. Paul’s University is a Christian ecumenical institution with students and staff from all over the world. Our mission is to raise the standards of education through holistic learning, in a Christian ecumenical atmosphere that gives room for people of all faiths to find a place of study, research, intellectual and spiritual engagement and growth.

We dare dream, plan and act, as we serve God and humanity. We have continued to make great strides and are ever grateful to all who have been part of our journey. We do not take for granted the high standards of excellence that we see all round us. It has taken genuine willingness of many who have sacrificially given of themselves in extraordinary service. We owe our successes to God and to all who proudly and selflessly carry the distinctive St. Paul’s mark of dedication. Read More

Student Affairs


Dean of Students Office

The Dean of Students Office is responsible for the welfare of students within campus and is charged with the task of ensuring you have settled well in school, and monitoring your academic and social progress.

Important Officers to Note

Rev. Daniel Aswani is the present Dean of students and is responsible for the student's welfare. He oversees the students social activities e.g clubs, scieties, sports among others. He also ensures that the halls of residence are safe and habitable at all times. He also sits in disciplinary committees for students.



Counselling is a free and confidential service offered by the university to support you in your university life and help you achieve your goals. Lydia Maina serves as the students’ counselor for all campuses of SPU. She is charged with responsibility of offering guidance to students throughout their life at SPU. She assists students to maintain high academic performance while enjoying the vibrant social life of University. She provides advice to students with academic, financial and social difficulties.

At St. Paul's University, we are aware that once in a while, there will arise situations that may distract the students from their studies and prevent them from having a great experience in the university. The University Counseling Center boosts the chances of our students succeeding in achieving their academic goals by providing professional personal, career, and academic counseling. The Counseling Center also tailor makes relevant training programs, workshops and public lectures on areas that the students may be facing challenges in. The Counseling Center has a professional Counseling Psychologist and is open Monday to Friday from 8.30 am to 5.00pm. The Center provides both face to face and online counseling. Online counseling is used as an adjunct for the face to face counseling for our students in the satellite campuses where the Counselor visits only on specific days. Students in the evening programs who may not have the time to leave their offices to go see a counselor benefit from online counseling.
