He further asked the administration to use the Sh58,000 paid by first-years for TWO academic years and not a semester.

 

UoN – UNSA Council of Governors chairman George Reagan requested President Uhuru Kenyatta to intervene in the squabbles facing the institution.

 

 

 

“We, therefore, call upon the President to make tuition free in public colleges and universities, increase HELB allocation and substantially reduce interest on student loans,” Reagan said.

 

 

 

With the 65th graduation in the institution of higher learning set to take place on Friday 24th , The students have planned to stage demonstrations daily, starting Monday until the administration listens to their grievances.

 

 

Students reporting for the September intake were slapped with increased accommodation fees.

 

 

Unlike the continuing students who previously paid about Sh2,700 per semester for accommodation, the first years in the institution will pay Sh18,690 per semester

 

The hostels were charged at Sh30, Sh28, and Sh26 per day for a whole semester.

 

 

The revised fees structure directs students to pay Sh175 daily for a single room and Sh144 for a room shared by two.

 

 

In July this year,UoN increased fees for master’s degrees from an average of Sh275,000 to Sh600,000 for a two-year program, an increase of 118 percent.
