The development of the campus started in 1993. The first project was the servicing and infrastructure contract that saw the completion of most underground infrastructure (potable water, fire mains, irrigation water, high voltage infrastructure, drainage) and the roads network.
The first building was the Administration Block which started in 1993 and was finally handed over in November 1998 due to serious cash flow problems. The faculty of commerce was the second building when it started in 1994 and was finally completed in 1998.
Since then, the university has adopted a partial completion and handover strategy, where four projects are currently under this scheme. These are Applied Chemistry Building, Chemical Engineering Building, Student’s Residences, Ceremonial Hall and the Central Stores and Maintenance Building.
Limited student accommodation is now available in the form of self catering units that are being let out to students. the design of the residences is such that there are 16 different units making up one cluster and these can be completed in phases and occupied. to date five units have been occupied.
The campus also boasts of an Olympic standard athletics sports stadium which can accommodate nine track and field disciplines.
