Mount Kenya University Meru Campus, Nkubu, 16 Kilometres from Meru town, the headquarters of Meru County, literally “stole” the thunder from its big sister in as far as campus location goes. Its location at Majani Plaza befits the reputation of MKU. Majani is swahili for “tea”, a green leaf that is grown by most small scale farmers. The region is also known as a net producer of khat,a mild stimulant that has gained worldwide fame.
Mount Kenya, Africa’s second tallest mountain, from where the university gets its name sprawls from Meru to Laikipia counties. Though agriculture are the main economic mainstays of Nkubu and Meru towns, the residents have a reputation for their entrepreneurial spirit. The Ameru people are also known for their cultural beliefs and practices, which have not been eroded by modernity. Thanks to its proximity to Mount Kenya, the area is also popular with both.
Distance from Thika Main Campus: 169Kms. The campus was established in April, 2010. It has has successfully implemented a quality management system under the ISO 9001:2008 standards and rolled out a five year strategic growth plan focusing on human resource, physical resource, governance, teaching and learning, marketing/research and community outreach, strategic linkages and collaboration, ICT and financial resources.
