This is further to our Notice issued earlier on suspension of physical learning dated 27th March 2021.
After further consultations on the 15th Presidential directive on corona virus, we have been instructed that the University be closed until further notice except for medical students.
All students are therefore required to vacate the University premises with immediate effect taking along their valuable items.
Following the 15th Presidential address on the Corona Virus Pandemic, Senate at its 521st special meeting held on 27th March 2021 resolved as follows:
Following the receipt of disbursement of HELB Loans on Tuesday 16th March 2021 by the University,sthe University Management Board at its meeting on Wednesday 17th March 2021 resolved that the portal be re-opened to allow students to register.

Beyond the deadline, any student who will not have registered is expected to vacate the University. Disciplinary action will be taken against any such student if found illegally in campus.

Mastercard Foundation has partnered with the Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM; www.ruforum.org), a network of 129 universities in 38 African countries to Transform African Agricultural Universities (TAGDev) to meaningfully contribute to Africa’s growth and development. The aim of the partnership is to transform African agricultural universities and their graduates to better respond to developmental challenges through enhanced application of science, technology, business and innovation for rural agricultural transformation.
After a long wait due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we finally welcomed our first year students (2020 cohort) to campus on the 4th and 5th of January 2020. This was a great opportunity for the students to be fused into the Egerton community. The students were admitted, registered, underwent orientation, and were attending classes on the University e-learning online platform. These students finally have an opportunity for in person interactions with their faculty. I trust that they will find inspiration from the confines of a secure and safe campus teeming with abundant agricultural resources and amenities for their education.
We have once again come to the end of the year, yet 2020 is a year unlike any in recent memory. Anunrelenting world pandemic whose magnitude and full impact is yet to be ascertained has continued toravage nations big and small. As the students finish their examinations and the academic year of 2020 draws to a close, I would like to take a pause to thank the students, faculty, and staff for their hard work,commitment, and devotion to the University.
