Kyambogo University was established in 2003 by the Universities and Other Tertiary Institutions Act 2001 by merging Uganda Polytechnic Kyambogo (UPK), the Institute of Teacher Education, Kyambogo (ITEK), and the Uganda National Institute of Special Education (UNISE).
Uganda Polytechnic Kyambogo
UPK evolved from a small technical school in 1928 before it was renamed Uganda Technical College and finally Uganda Polytechnic, Kyambogo.
Institute of Teacher Education, Kyambogo
ITEK started as a government teacher training college in 1948 at Nyakasura, Kabarole District. In 1954, it transferred to Kyambogo Hill as a national teachers’ college and later became ITEK by statute of parliament in 1989.
Uganda National Institute of Special Education
The university campus is located on Kyambogo Hill, approximately 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) by road, east of the central business district of Kampala, Uganda's capital and largest city, along the Kampala-Jinja Highway.
