UCU Mbale University College

Uganda Christian University, Mbale University College had its humble beginnings in 2003 with three staff and 46 students offering only Business Administration and Social Science programmes both at degree and diploma levels.

In 2006, the Uganda Christian University, Buwalasi/Mbale Study Centre, as it was then called, acquired former Nabuyonga Primary School premises with the help of the Mbale diocese (Anglican) in 2009. In 2016, the Campus became a Constituent College of Uganda Christian University.

Although largely undeveloped with a few lecture rooms, a nearly empty library and without hostel facility, the Study Centre took advantage of its location in the heart of Mbale town to grow in academic stature by introducing evening programmes to cater for the working-class as well as expanding the academic programmes.
