  • Purity Waweru(Bachelor of Business and Information Technology (BBIT) Class of 2019) Rating:
    The Multimedia university is one of the best Institutions in the country. The teaching and non-teaching staff is very competent and highly qualified. The facilities in the school are at an average stage but there are improvement being made.The security is very good. The school produces graduates who have relevant skills in their field of study. The school has some challenges like,the invasion of baboons into the school compound that really disturb the peace of the students but the security personnel does an excellent job of chasing them away. I would rate it with four stars out of five. Job well done MMU.
  • Kavai Shujaa (BCOM Class of 2018) Rating:
    MMU is an upcoming university which has shown tremendous improvement in the provision of quality education which caters all the individuals classes of the economy .Basically for me ,it has been a home away from home environment that has really given me humble time for studies. I like the fact that we do not strain much for the resources available as our colleagues from other universities do ,eg accommodation and learning facilities.
  • John Chege(Information Technology Class of 2016) Rating:
    The university is one of the best universities in Kenya in terms of education offered. Has 5 faculties including computing and information technology, business and law,engineering, science and mass communication.
    The problems with the university before when we joined was the school's administration which now seems to be changing and the university will be at better place 5 years to come.
