St. Lawrence University (SLAU) is one of the 54 Universities in Uganda that are making a significant contribution to Higher Education. The niche of the University, for ICT and Entrepreneurship, is the bedrock for all programmes offered at the University. This direction prepares students for sustainable livelihood after campus, because every student is given opportunity to excel at a skill relevant in the job market.
The University’s Motto “Light your Candle” prepares its products to be responsible for their future by preparing adequately for the challenges in the outer world. The Founder of the University invested heavily in the physical infrastructure of the institution which now has an academically conducive learning environment. The spacious lecture rooms, the large
Library space, office and seminar accommodation makes teaching and learning an enjoyable activity at campus. The available infrastructure for sporting activities, well equipped computer laboratories and the attraction and retention of highly experienced and motivated staff has led to providing high quality graduates. The University was licensed to operate in 2007 by the National Council for Higher Education (NCHE) and has grown in all sectors over time. All the programmes offered have been accredited by NCHE and Uganda Business and Technical Examinations Board (UBTEB) in conjunction with the Directorate of Industrial Training (DIT).
