Technical University of Mombasa (TUM) is a public university located in Mombasa, Kenya. the university owes its roots to the Mombasa Institute of Muslim Education (MIOME). It started by providing technical education to Muslim Students of East Africa.

In 1966, it became Mombasa Technical Institute and started to admit all people from different walks of life regardless of religion and race. In 1976, it evolved into Mombasa Polytechnic and was later elevated to a University College in 2007. It gained full university status in 2013 as the Technical University of Mombasa. Its campuses are found in Mombasa, Kwale and Lamu.

The university is committed to achieving excellence and assuring quality in offering opportunities for access of commensurate scientific, technical, entrepreneurship education and research skills for innovation and creativity in order to meet and exceed the expectations of customers and stakeholders.

Extending the knowledge and skills of its employees is one of the University’s key commitments, and it continues to develop instruments, infrastructure and human resources that are responsive to national needs.

The university also entered into partnerships with international institutions of higher learning for research, training and technology transfer. Student enrolment currently stands at over 10600, and over 780 staff.

The Technical University of Mombasa counts several facilities and services that enhance the academic environment for the university community. These include accommodation, health and catering services – six hostels in the main campus with a total bed capacity of 800 students.

The proximity of the hostels to the administration and tuition area and security make the former the preferred place to stay. The limited bed capacity provided by the hostels is supplemented by a number of privately run hostels near the main campus.

The Health Unit offers healthcare mainly in the curative, preventive and promotive care services; the main kitchen and dining hall primarily serve the students that reside in the university hostels on a pay-as-you-eat basis. The dining hall also serves clients on a pre-paid arrangement. The university also has several clubs and societies that students are encouraged to join.

Mombasa is a coastal city of Kenya along the Indian Ocean. The city is known as the white and blue city in Kenya. It is the country’s oldest (circa 900 AD) and second-largest city. Before Mombasa became well established as an important port for trade across the Indian Ocean, the general area had long been the site of settlements inhabited by Bantu-speaking peoples who engaged in farming, fishing, and local trading. It was visited in 1331 by the Arab traveller Ibn Baṭṭūṭah and in 1498 by the Portuguese navigator Vasco da Gama. Because of its strategic position, it was continually fought over, passing among the Arabs, Persians, Portuguese, and Turks until 1840, when the sultan of Zanzibar finally gained control. It came under British administration in 1895 and was the capital of the East Africa Protectorate until 1907. Mombasa became a municipality in 1928 and assumed council status in 1959. Today it is a regional and cultural hub. The urban population of the city is just over 1.2 million. It has a tropical wet and dry climate, and the amount of rainfall essentially depends on the season. The rainiest months are April and May, while rainfall is minimal between January and February. Average annual temperatures vary between 21.3 degrees Celsius and 31.3 degrees Celsius.

Mombasa is a major trade centre and it has two ports, Mombasa Old Port on the island’s east side and Kilindini Harbour on the west. The old port is now used only by dhows and small craft, bringing trade from Arabia, the Persian Gulf, and India. The Kilindini Harbour is Kenya’s only large seaport. The port is so-called because the channel is naturally very deep. It serves as the market for the region’s agricultural products (sisal, cotton, sugar, kapok, coconuts, fruits, and vegetables), and it exports many of these as well as the products of northeastern Tanzania and Uganda, with which it is connected by rail. Industries include shipbuilding and repair, metal and cement works, sugar processing, a fertilizer plant, and an oil refinery at Changamwe.

The Moi International Airport serves the city of Mombasa. The city currently has a modern railway station on the Mombasa–Nairobi Standard Gauge Railway that replaced the century-old station built by the British. Driving in Mombasa is straight forward and the majority of the roads are tarmacked. Its beachfront hotels appeal to travellers in search of sun, sand and surf, while its Arab, Indian and colonial European heritage makes for a wide variety of sights to see. Mombasa’s northern shoreline is renowned for its vibrant 24-hour entertainment offers, including both family entertainment (water parks, cinemas, bowling), sports (watersports, mountain biking and go-karting), culinary offers – with restaurants offering a wide range of specialities from Kenya, China, Japan, India, Italy, Germany and other countries –  and nightlife. The city is home to the Technical University of Mombasa, and a campus of Kenyatta University. It offers students a vibrant hub of culture and entertainment, alongside a solid option for technical education.
