In 2000, the Institute developed into a commercial college and was recognized as a fully fledged institution of higher learning by Ministry of Education Science and Technology later that year. The university was awarded the University charter on 26th January, 2011. Mt. Kenya University is found in Thika Town about 45 km North East of Nairobi City.
