Our History

The University traces its roots to Central Training School (CTS) which was founded in 1948 as an East African Telecommunications Training Institution. It later changed to Kenya Posts and Telecommunications Corporation (KPTC) Training School after the collapse of the East African Community in 1977. In 1992, it became a subsidiary of Telkom Kenya (TKL) and was renamed Kenya College of Communications Technology (KCCT).

In November 2008, it was upgraded to Multimedia University College of Kenya as a constituent college of Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology and later awarded a charter as a Public University on 1st March 2013.

Since becoming a fully-fledged University, MMU has witnessed steady growth both in infrastructural nature and students’ enrolment – that has increased from around 3000 in 2014 to over 7000 in 2023. This steady growth in students’ enrolment is explained by first, expansion of competitive academic programs and setting of appropriate academic infrastructure.
