South Eastern Kenya University Reviews and Rating by Students and Alumni: 4.5 out of 5 based on 46 ratings and 46 reviews.
  • Julius Kyalo David(BCom Finance Class of 2016) Rating:
    The school is situated in the most appropriate and conducive environment of studying with absolute zero chances of disturbance that can result from factors like noise since the only road within the school area is just a single road that only leads to the school. Security is well maintained since the school is fenced and the security guards conduct frisking exercises to individuals entering and leaving the school. Facilities are adequate since the library services are automated and borrowing of books is done online as well there are computers available for the use by students for research purposes and the availability of wifi for browsing. The lectures are very punctual and cover all the content within the required time. Examination results,fee balances,event communications are done through the students portal.
  • Motatiro Chacha Emmanuel(Biochemistry and molecular biology Class of 2017) Rating:
    South eastern Kenya university is a university located in kitui county. I like the behaviour of students, staffs and lecturers in this university. I also like its well equipped library and laboratories. It''s performance is promising. It is certified by the international standard of operation. However it faces challenges such as transportation due to its remoteness as well as poor infrastructures.
  • Edward Chege(Bachelor of economics and statistics Class of 2019) Rating:
    The school is located in a conducive and noise-free environment. It has a well equipped library and spacious lecture hall. Security around the school is assured of with security officers monitoring movement of students and staffs in and out of the facility. Due to semiarid condition in the area, water shortage still remains a challenge.
  • Peter Mutambu(Bachelor of Commerce Class of 2018) Rating:
    I believe it is the best. Literally there is something for everyone out there. At first I didn't enjoy it because of its environment and the little town here has no shopping, and social life is quite limited. I later realized its the best, with a conducive learning environment.
  • Joseph Muyela Amihanda(Education Science(Mathematics/Physics) Class of 2017) Rating:
    The best place to learn is in an arid and semi arid area like this. A university in a unique and serene environment that best accommodates the majority. Despite the water problem in the area, the night environment is awesome. The best place to be.
  • Elvis Kisina(Bsc. Electronics Class of 2018) Rating:
    Actually SEKU is located in serene environment conducive for learning away from nearby market centres. It has well trained staff members and offers quality education. Although the laboratories are not well equipped. I will actually miss SEKU.
  • Ajabu Norris(Bachelor of Commerce (Finance) Class of 2015) Rating:
    The University is located in a very cool and quiet place providing a good studying environment. It is an upcoming university, still facing facility and infrustructural challenges but with time it is going to be the best University in Kenya.
  • Dr. Brian Tom(Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Class of 2017) Rating:
