The University’s domain name was changed in June 2015 from @karatinauniversity.ac.ke to a shorter version, @karu.ac.ke.  The shorter version is convenient and less cumbersome to use especially for accessing university based email accounts. In line with this adjustment, the University web site is now www.karu.ac.ke. The website has been enriched with more content and regular updates.

Another notable project under this department and that was recently completed with great success is the creation of university domain based email addresses for all staff and students. The email service is a critical tool in internal and external communication for all.
