Welcome to Oshakati Campus
The Campus is strategically located in the town center’s Eliander Mwatale Street, off the Main Road C46, next to the Oshakati Independence Stadium. We are within a walking distance to the Oshakati State Teaching Hospital, Hotels, and Restaurants as well as to the major Shopping Malls in Oshakati. This location makes the campus less of an ivory tower and its facilities more accessible to the communities that we serve.
The Campus has well-equipped laboratories with internet facilities that are accessible to students 24 hours a day. Video and teleconferencing facilities are common practice at the Campus, allowing specialist lecturers to teach students pursuing postgraduate programmes, from the main campus or anywhere in the world.
