St. Paul's is an ecumenical private chartered university founded in 1903.
It is located along Nairobi-Limuru Route A, 30kms from Nairobi, next to Jumuia Conference and Country Home, in a cool and serene environment, that is very conducive for the learning process.
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 Armed Forces of the Republic of Kenya.
