Getting to MJNUAT and Access to Services

Services offered within MJNUAT

The University is yet to establish service providing systems for its stakeholders and as such for the time being visitors will have to relay on few services available in Butiama township. Expanded scope of services are available in Musoma [44 km] and Bunda [41 km] towns.  Otherwise Mwanza [196 km] provides superb services of all frontiers.

The university or the rallied private sector will provide some basic services effective October 2016 and as the student and staff bodies grow.
