Uganda Martyrs University (UMU) whose main Campus is located at Nkozi 88 kms South of Kampala, the Capital of Uganda, on the Kampala-Masaka road, was started in October 1993 with 84 students and two academic Departments, namely the Institute of Ethics and Development Studies and the Faculty of Business Administration and Management.
To date, the total enrolment of students is approximately 5000, of whom about 1193 are full-time residents on campus, while the rest are following distance-learning programmes and part-time programmes at the University and Kampala-Campus at the Uganda Catholic Management and Training Institute – Rubaga. Students of UMU come from all over the world. The university also hosts students for field work and research from Europe and USA. This international atmosphere offers a good study experience to the students and staff as well as an opportunity for a rich cultural exchange.
The University opened with 84 students (28 female and 56 male) from all parts of Uganda. In the recent years we have enrolled more female than male students. Our present student population is 5000. Of these 1500 are resident on campus. 2751 are on distance learning programmes and 753 are for part-time postgraduate courses in Kampala and various other parts of Uganda.
