Daystar University

(Redirected from Daystar (college))

Daystar University is a private Christian liberal arts university in Nairobi.[1][2]

Daystar's original campus is close to Nairobi city centre, but there was no room to expand at that location. Therefore, in 1992 a new campus was built at Athi River, some 40 km to the south-east of the city, on the Mombasa Road which became the main campus.


It has seven schools and fifteen academic departments which include
