University of Eswatini / Campuses
The University of Eswatini has three beautiful campuses, each with its own unique character and purpose. The faculties of Commerce, Social Sciences, Science and Engineering, Humanities and Education are customised to their purposes, self-contained on campuse at Kwaluseni. Our Mbabane campus is home to our Health Sciences faculty which allows students the experience to have access to the Mbabane Government Hospital, for its practical course work.
UNESWA’s Luyengo Campus is focussed on providing a strong foundation for students in the faculties of Agriculture and Consumer Sciences. The campuses’ access to the University Farm allows for students to have first hand experience in the trade of Agriculture, which is what the economy of Eswatini is built on.
The Kwaluseni Campus is located 9 km from the city of Manzini and 34 km from the capital city Mbabane and is close to the main road linking the two cities. The first stage of campus development was financed jointly by grants from the United Kingdom, Canada, the USA Anglo American Corporation and the Government of Eswatini. It was officially opened by King Sobhuza II on 8th September 1973. This campus is situated on gently sloping land with sufficient room for expansion. It is the nerve-centre of the University, housing the central administrative offices, five Faculties, the Institute of Distance Education (IDE), the Institute of Post-Graduate Studies, the Main Library and other Centres and Administrative Units.
Formerly the Eswatini Agricultural College and University Centre (SACUC), the Luyengo Campus now constitutes the University’s Faculty of Agriculture. It is located in the Malkerns Valley which is noted for its small-scale commercial farming approximately 37 km from the city of Mbabane and 27 km from the city of Manzini along the Manzini-Bhunya road. The Campus also houses the University’s Research Centre, the National Research Council (NRC).
Having appreciated the potential to strengthen nursing sciences, environmental health sciences, and other related programs, the University of Eswatini and Government agreed that in 1996, the Institute of Health Sciences now the Faculty of Health Sciences was incorporated into the University. This was done in order to strengthen existing nursing science and environmental health science programs. The campus is located in the city of Mbabane about 37 km away from the Kwaluseni Campus. The campus is located in close proximity to the Mbabane Government Hospital which serves the capital city, Mbabane, and the surrounding areas. The faculty which has a total ground area of 15, 000 m2 comprises of three blocks of students hostels, a dining hall, library, lecture rooms and the main administration building.
