Department of Biology on the World map of Scientific achievements "The guardian rats of Kenya"

The University of Nairobi’s Department of Biology, Chiromo campus, has for ages been breeding white mice and rats for research. The commonest strain are the Wistar rats, which are kept and fed in well-lit and aerated rooms with a cage holding about 10 mice.  

Jacques Kabaru, an associate professor at the Department of Biology, has been the animal house in charge at Chiromo for the last 30 years.



The University of Nairobi wishes to inform all students from the Colleges Of Agriculture & Veterinary Sciences, Architecture & Engineering, Biological & Physical Sciences, Education & External Studies and ODeL Campus who qualified for the award of various degrees and diplomas at the end of the last academic year (2019/2020) and members of the public, that the 63rd Graduation Ceremony will be held VIRTUALLY on Friday, September 25, 2020, commencing at 8.00 a.m. at the Great Court.


This is to inform all students that the semester dates have been extended by three weeks.

This is due to the disruption of face-to-face teaching and learning brought on the third wave of COVID 19 which led to the abrupt closure of the university. The school has continued with online teaching and learning in the meantime to mitigate the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic situation.

This is to you that the second-semester examination will therefore commence on 7th June 2021 up to and including 18th June 2021.
