STUDENT CATERING
The Zarepath restaurant, which is the main catering unit, provides quality, fresh and balanced diet to our students from breakfast, mid-morning, lunch, mid-afternoon and evening.
We provide a variety of meals on the main counter, buffet, choma-zone, live cooking and fruit & juice parlour; all at student friendly rates.
The student can access these meals using a pay-as-you-eat system. This involves paying cash, use of Mpesa and the Biometric self-swiping system.
*What is swiping? This is the use of the Student Registration number as an account and can be accessed using the Student ID card and the Thumb print referred to as biometric.
*How is it done?
1. First you deposit any amount to our bank accounts or Mpesa paybill
2. Provide the deposit slip or Mpesa message at the Student Finance office
3. The amount will then be loaded to your registration number account
4. The student will the proceed to the Zarepath restaurant and access the system using a two-step security process of one’s Student ID card and the Biometric Thumb print.
5. The system will display the daily menu, one will pick a desired menu then the system will generate a receipt.
6. The student will then provide the receipt at the point of sale and be served.
This Biometric swiping allows the Student and Parent to;
1. Monitor the use of funds in the account
2. Access the account statement
3. Protect the account from identity theft
4. Prevent irregular swiping
5. Reduce cost of paying with Mpesa which has transaction charges
As a guardian or parent, you can top up the account with any amount and the student will undertake the above process to load the deposited amount to his/her account.

WHY KABARAK UNIVERSITY HOSTEL

Here is why it is important for your child to be a resident;

For this amount the parent/guardian and student enjoy value for money on the following;

  1. Unlimited Internet access for studying and recreation
  2. Safety and security of the students and the student’s belongings
  3. Access to uninterrupted water and electricity
  4. Convenient access to the University academic and recreational facilities
  5. Better time management in getting to class on time
  6. Proximity to counseling services by the Student Affairs department
  7. Zero transport expenses
  8. Free luggage storage during long holidays
  9. Strict Covid-19 adherence

And lastly Responsible Freedom; these is a major concern for us as we propagate the University motto of Education in Biblical perspective.

As young adults, University students living outside the University are prone to negative peer pressure, abuse of drugs and alcohol, class absenteeism, living in risky areas, loss of property and early pregnancies caused by informal partnerships or co-habiting.

It is our prayer that you evaluate these elements and make the best decision for these young adults in this crucial stage of their life.

Our moral code is; As members of Kabarak University, we purpose at all times and in all places to set apart in one’s heart Jesus as Lord (1st Peter 3:15)
