In response to the widening Coronavirus pandemic, the University of Nairobi has moved face to face classes online.

While communicating to staff and students during closure of the university on March 16, Vice Chancelor, Prof. Stephen Kiama said, “The supervision of postgraduate students and learning of students registered for open and distance learning shall continue to be managed through online platforms.”

The move is designed to provide continuity for student’s education while at the same helping to slow down spread of the coronavirus to the university community.

The unprecedented step to close down the university followed a gradual increase of coronavirus cases in past few weeks.
