It provides Certificate, Diploma, Bachelor’s and Post graduate programmes to residents of Nyeri town and its environs extending as far as Nanyuki in the East and Nyahururu in the West. Some of the courses offered include: Security Management and Police studies, Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Education Arts, Early Childhood education, Gender and Development studies, CISCO networking among others. The Campus offers its programmes through regular, evening, weekend and Dsvol mode of curriculum delivery.

We also participate in extra-curricular activities to keep our students healthy and focused. The relevance of our programmes is maintained through regular internal and external audit by Kenyatta University’s Quality Management Systems’ Directorate and SGS. Nyeri Campus is ISO 90001:2015 Certified. The University’s courses are tailored to equip our graduates with competitive edge skills for the workplace. Already, many of our graduates are exposed to new employment opportunities by working on 'live' projects during their study.
