Games

Games Section

This section is tasked with the management and administration of games and sports for both students and staff. It is headed by Mr. David Obungu. The section facilitates students’ sporting events through maintenance of playing grounds, provision of playing equipments and taking students out to compete in tournaments. Nearly all games and sporting disciplines are available in the University. The games office normally organizes inter-year competitions each academic year to identify talented students to join the University team in various disciplines.

The games office ensures that the University is registered with relevant sports associations in which our students compete alongside other universities and sporting associations. Such linkages provide a good platform for students to interact and network with people from different backgrounds in both professional and social upbringing.
