Our History

The decision to establish an Islamic university in Uganda came out of the Heads of states summit of the OIC member states that took place in 1974 in Lahore, Pakistan.

It was decided that two Islamic universities be set up in Africa; one in Niger to serve the French speaking African states and one in Uganda to serve the English speaking states.

In the case of the Islamic university in Uganda, preliminary works began and it was decided then that the university would be set up in West Nile district of Arua at a place called Arivu. Unfortunately, the university never took off until the late Idi Amin Dada’s government was overthrown.

During the early 1980s, the then government changed the site of the university from Arua to Mbale and offered the premises of Nkoma Secondary School to accommodate the university.

However, the university did not start until February 10, 1988 when it opened its doors to its pioneer students.

As per the recommendation of the OIC-Uganda Joint Committee, the university started with 80 students of whom 15 were females.

The university started with two faculties-the faculty of Islamic and Arabic Language and the faculty of Education. Initially it was thought that the faculty of medicine would also be started, but when government of Uganda withdrew the school of hygiene which it had previously donated, it became impossible to start a medical course then.
