Daystar is a Christian liberal arts university in Nairobi, Kenya.

Daystar's original campus is close to Nairobi city centre, but there was no room to expand at that location. Therefore, in the last decade a new campus has been built at Athi River, some 40 km to the south-east of the city, on the Mombasa Road. This development has been largely as a result of work of the vice chancellor of Daystar, Professor S. Talitwala.

Application Deadline: 30 October 2012
Open to International students: Yes (must be a registered student)
