Keri is a residence for female students between 18 and 24 years of age. Applicants must be enrolled in a full-time degree or diploma course at a Kenyan university or college. Our main intake is in July; hence your application should be submitted between April 1st & May 31st. Any other intake is on a need basis and is preceded by a call for applications on our website. Please do not submit an application for an intake other than July unless a call for applications has been placed on this page.

Keri supports the pursuit of academic excellence and all-round development. The atmosphere in the Residence depends upon the responsibility and respect for personal freedom of each resident.

An applicant is offered a place on the understanding that she will, by her positive contribution to the life of the Residence, seek to promulgate the academic and family tone of the Residence, and engage in its academic, professional and social activities with residents and non-residents who participate in the activities that Keri organizes.
