DEFOCA and Mukuru came together to form the DEFOCA Mukuru Studyville, a company limited by guarantee and incorporated under the Companies Act (Cap 486) on the 7th March 2007, with the aim of providing affordable and dignified residential accommodation for young men and women studying at universities in Kenya.
In pursuit of its goals, DEFOCA Mukuru Studyville presently operates a complex of University Halls of Residence that accommodate just over 500 University students (undergraduate and postgraduate). The Studyville is currently in its first phase of development, with three more phases planned for the future.
The Halls of the Studyville, which opened in February 2008, are designed to provide a comfortable sociable environment conducive to rest and study. The students can relax, play games, relate with the rest of the students and study in a friendly secure atmosphere.
