Presbyterian varsity closes Nairobi campus

The Presbyterian University of East Africa has shut its Nairobi town campus in compliance with tough regulations on setting up of such centres.

Vice-chancellor John Mungania said its more than 200 students have been moved to the main campus at Kikuyu.

“We closed the campus on August 31 after it emerged that we could not meet tough rules of setting up a campus in the city. We needed adequate space and land. We have already addressed the welfare of the affected students,” said Prof Mungania in an interview Thursday.

The regulatory rules included having ample space for learning, a library and being far from noisy places.

The closure of the campus comes in the wake of Kenya Methodist University shutting down its Nyeri, Nakuru and Mombasa campuses.
