Welcome to the University of Arusha

Situated 32 kilometers from the beautiful city of Arusha, closer to the Arusha National Park and between the towering mountains, mountain Kilimanjaro and mountain Meru, is an institution of repute with its own uniqueness. This institution is known as the University of Arusha situated on 250 acres of land. The only University with grammatical article, ‘the’ which goes with the name for easy identification.
This University, the University of Arusha has gone through what can be termed as educational metamorphosis. It began as a college in the 1970’s with few courses. It later expanded its curriculum to incorporate different academic departments. Later it got a license to operate as a university, and later was chartered by the government of the United Republic of Tanzania.
