About MMU

The idea for starting a university in Central Western Uganda was mooted by the indigenous community members from the region led by Hon. Justice Seth Manyindo, Prof. Edward B. Rugumayo and the Rev. Albert Byaruhanga (RIP) among others. They volunteered to establish a quality university where it had lacked for a longtime. The peoples from the seven districts of Bundibugyo, Kabarole, Kamwenge, Kasese, Kyegegwa, Kyenjojo and Ntoroko which constitute the Central Western Uganda fully supported the university idea and participated in the preparations for its establishment and even pledged sustained support. The seven districts currently form the main regional catchment area of the university plus the greater portion of the western rift valley. The university serves a regional human population of over 3.7m people which is expanding at the rate of 4.8% per annum. The university strategic location in the town of Fort Portal was aimed at easing access to meeting the Education, research and community service needs of the people in Central Western Uganda and beyond. The university was founded through a legal status as a Company Limited by Guarantee in June 2002. Then in March 2005 the National Council For High Education (NCHE) granted an operational license to the university.
