Receive my warmest greetings
It gives me great pleasure to address you today. The University of Nairobi declared a total capacity of 6,540 in the Kenya University and Colleges Placement Services (KUCCPS). I am happy to report that the university achieved 88% placement of our total declared capacity across our 56-programs offered.

It is worth noting, that of the total number of students placed, 46.2% were Female and 53.8% Male. I wish to congratulate all those who have been admitted to the University of Nairobi for the Academic Year 2022/2023.  The university registration for all those admitted to the University of Nairobi will begin on Monday 12th September 2022. To access admission letters and joining instructions you are required to Log on to smis.uonbi.ac.ke using the registration number and KCSE index numbers as the password.

Students who would wish to transfer from one program to another will be given a chance to do so at a later date to be communicated. As you prepare to join the UoN Family, I wish to assure you that you have made the best decision to join the leading University in the region.

I now wish to most sincerely all those who supported and joined us during the pre-launch dinner and the Launch of the University of Nairobi Foundation which was held in June 2022. Your generous donations and presence immensely contributed towards the success of the launch. The stage is now set for the University of Nairobi star to shine even brighter! We now have a special purpose vehicle that will allow us to engage and serve the community better. I call on all our alumni to donate generously towards this initiative. Donations to the foundation can be channeled through our website foundation@uonbi.ac.ke or through the paybill number 542542.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the University of Nairobi continues to seek and engage in active collaborations towards realization of its vision. Yesterday afternoon we entered a collaboration with the Global Centre on Adaptation to support initiatives on acceleration of climate change adaptation. The signing of this collaboration was witnessed by His Excellency, President Uhuru Kenyatta. On the same occasion, His Excellency the President was Inaugurated as the Global Champion for the Africa Adaptation Acceleration Program. We congratulate H.E the President, for this recognition and for choosing our iconic Taifa hall for this historic event. The University of Nairobi community will support him in the global role he has taken.

Thank you and God bless you abundantly.
