The University of Bosaso City Campus (UOBCC) was established in May, 2012 in line with the university’s strategic plans in enhancing access to University education through expansion of facilities and services and increasing University’s presence in various parts of the country.

  1. Garowe Campus

The Garowe Campus is one of the sister campus of University of Bosaso Bosaso Campuses. It hosts and provides holistic educational programmes as coordinated by the main campus in Bosaso.
