The University of Nairobi, with the main campus in Nairobi CBD, is without a doubt the best University in East Africa. Many of Kenyas great leaders have come from this university. The main campus is in the CBD but the one I have visited is the School Of Business which is located in Lower Kabete (14km from the main campus). A cab from city center to lower kabete costs 800/= Lower Kabete in itself is a posh estate with jacaranda trees and manicured lawns going for kilometers. It is therefor no shock that this campus has the most serene environment I have ever seen in a campus. I took a matatu which costs 50/= from city center. The entrance to the campus is huge. It is hard to miss it with the School of Business title written in bold on the perimeter wall. I alighted the matatu and went on ahead to the security check. The guards are very friendly but thorough. The have to know your purpose for visiting the campus and you have to should a form of identification. This campus is beautiful. From the entrance everything is green. Tall jacaranda trees on all the main paths. You can stroll through the whole campus with the trees shading you from the sun. Immediately after the entrance to your left, there is a huge lecture hall. I saw a class of about 50 students having a class at the time. On your right is the receptions and an administration block. I walked to the administration and the secretary was so eager to meet my needs. From a far you can see a huge soccer pitch which boarder a block of hostel. I think the students in this campus really enjoy the peace in this place. Its nothing like I’ve seen before.

Repeatedly acclaimed to be the best university in East Africa and one of the best in Africa. The University of Nairobi is located in the heart of Nairobi City. Once you get to the CBD, it takes a less than 10 minutes walk to the gates of UON. From a far you can see the towering University of Nairobi Towers. Most of the times, this building acts as a compass on locating the campus.The sheer size of the campus takes you aback. With its blue and white colour on the gates and all the buildings, its hard to mistake this for any other institution. At the gate, there is the mandatory security check by guards. Past the gate, everything is pavements and the most manicured lawns. Walking a few steps and you come across the graduation square. Its in the middle of all these buildings which house offices and classes. Thankfully there are sign posts everywhere, otherwise, navigating this jungle would be quite a task. I visited the main offices and there is something about the way you are welcomed at the reception. The secretaries are very friendly and always smiling ready to meet your every need. Quality services for a world class university.
