9. Academic records and “No change of Names” policy. The University of Nairobi has a policy on “No change of name”. This policy does not allow students to use affidavits or deed polls for change of names during the student’s academic stay at the University. The policy is informed by a court ruling (court case Petition no. 63 of 2018 ) that guided that an “affidavit, deed poll and the likes are not academic documents for purposes of names.”

Applicants are therefore advised that they will be admitted at the University of Nairobi using the names that appear on the result slips and or certificates they present for admission purposes. The names that appear on the required application documents will be used in all academic records and shall be the names that will appear in the official University of Nairobi certificates.
