Welcome to Maasai Mara university town campus, “the campus of choice”. The campus was started towards the end of 2014 and is situated at the heart of Narok Town along the Narok – Nairobi highway at the Oltalet shopping mall. In pursuance of the university vision and mission of being a world class university we offer high-quality education through research, innovation and consultancy services. We offer market driven programmes which ensure that our graduates meet the market demands and stand out in the crowded academic arena.

The campus offers post- graduate, graduate, diploma and certificate programmes in business management, education, social works, community development, tourism and wildlife management and environmental science. The courses are offered in the regular, evening and weekend modules to meet the ever growing demands for education for business people, employees in the various fields and school leavers.

Our programmes have adopted the alternative module where the courses are fast-tracked using the tri-semester system hence providing an advantage of completing the courses within the shortest time possible.

The campus boasts of a serene learning environment with quality facilities for all ages and quality teaching staff drawn from the main campus which is next door. Come to us and realize your life time dreams.
