Message from Director - Security & safety Services


The University of Nairobi is one of the historical landmarks that grace the city of Nairobi, which is not only the capital city of Kenya but also the Central Business Hub in the region. In the 1990s, Nairobi was rated by the United Nations (UN) as one of the most dangerous capital cities and was downgraded from class B to C in the UN Security Council classification. The poverty index and high level of unemployment further aggravate the insecurity situation in Nairobi whose big percentage of its populace are young and unemployed.

The University of Nairobi is directly affected by this problem because of its strategic location at the heart of the city. Thugs masquerade as students /staff within the precincts of the University and as such this has posed a big challenge to the university calling for the University to Device Strategies to secure students, staff as well as its property. Security department is one of the key departments in the University that fall directly under the Deputy Vice-Chancellor Administration and Finance. It is the security arm of the University charged with ensuring safety of students, staff, vast University Land, Equipments, Motor vehicles and other physical facilities.
