The Idea of Kabale University was born way back in 1995 under the umbrella of the Kigezi Development Association. In 1999, Kabale District Local Government signed and sealed a commitment deed confirming its donation of land in Kabale Municipality for the development of Kabale University.

This contribution was fifty-three (53) acres of land and the developments on it at Kikungiri Hill and Nyabikoni. In the same year, an application to operate Kabale University as a centre of higher learning was submitted to the Ministry of Education and Sports (MoES).

Kabale University is located on Plot 364 Block 3 Kikungiri Hill, in Kabale Municipal Council, about 2 kilometers off Kabale-Kigali Highway.  This consists of 50 acres of land.  The University can be accessed via Mukombe Road and University Road, which connect the Kikungiri Campus to Kabale-Katuna Road.   An additional Campus (Just over 3 acres) is located on Plots 66-76 in Nyabikoni Parish in the Central Division of Kabale Municipal Council.

The University was established as a not-for-profit community institution, owned by the people of Kigezi – citizens of the current districts of Kabale, Kanungu, Kisoro and Rukungiri.  The University opened its gates in 2002 to forty-two (42) students and presently has a student enrolment of about 3000 students: coming from all parts of Uganda, and the neighbouring countries of Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Congo (DRC) and South Sudan. Kabale University has recently been transformed from a private into a public University.
