The State of University of Zanzibar Description

Founded in 1999 and started its academic activities in 2001, SUZA has quickly placed itself among the icons of academic quality and excellence in the region. As a public university, it focuses on delivering relevant education targeted at speeding up social changes and positive transformation to contribute to socio-economic development of the country.

SUZA consists of various campuses that are found at equally beautiful but different locations within the island. Inherited from the first Teacher Training College in East Africa comes Beit-el-Rasi campus. Located along the coast of the Indian Ocean 5 km from the stone town, this is a unique and unparalleled campus in the region that is constantly and naturally decorated by glittering blue sea and white beach along the perimeter of the campus. Here, our students enjoy very enriching learning environment along with the sea breezes.

The Vuga campus is at the heart of the famous and historic stone town. Zanzibar is proud of this very magnificently conserved UNESCO World heritage site that vividly manifests rich culture and history of Zanzibar and its people. The Vuga campus therefore is composed of old but well kept historic structures that are surrounded by social amenities and public offices. SUZA will soon expand to its new third campus, called Tunguu Campus. Located around 12 km from the stone town, this brand new green field campus offers cutting-edge infrastructure of world standard. The campus will give to students a local alternative to some of the world’s attractive learning environments. These three campuses are all located in Unguja island. More new campuses, that will house new schools, are planned to be built in the next five years in accordance with the university strategic plan. These will be located in both, Unguja and the sister island of Pemba.
