History was made in September 1978 when the first classes were held in what was then known as Pan Africa Christian College.
Originally founded as a Bible College, the University was built on the site of the former Lumumba Institute (Current Thika Road Campus), along Lumumba Drive, Roysambu.
With the changes in the Higher Education sector in Kenya, the College grew to a point where it was Chartered as a Private University by President Mwai Kibaki in February 2008. With the Charter came the change in name to Pan Africa Christian (PAC) University.
Over the years, PAC University has grown in terms of academic-offering, with over thirty five (35) courses currently on offer. Important to note is that all our graduate and undergraduate courses are approved by Commission for University Education (CUE).
In 2024, the University celebrated 10 years since receiving a Charter and 40 years of existence.
