 Short history of our Department:

The Catering department is among the premier departments in the university because from the institution’s inception in 2007 the kitchen stood tall in providing services to the students, staff and the community around.

 Progressively the department has been growing from a one headed unit with few staff and providing services, only at the Mess for all people, to now a more extensive service provision from the mess catering for bonafide students at subsidized rates.

 Texas cafeteria caters for both students and staff and offers variety of meals and can also hosts special functions e.g. birthday, end of year parties religious and club gatherings

 Makuti Restaurant (staff cafeteria) an ample candle lit wind, serene environment, a view of Sagalla hills. A thatched house reflecting the coastal tradition in the kind of delicacy it offers. It offers services to the university community and visitors from late breakfast, mid morning tea, lunch, and afternoon tea. In addition we also offer catering services for departmental bookings.

 We strive to build a brand image in the hospitality industry with improved services from our trained and experienced staff.
