Answer ( 1 )
Sokoine University of Agriculture is located in Morogoro town on the foot-hills of the scenic Uluguru Mountains about 220 km west of Dar es Salaam along the Dar es Salaam – Zambia Highway. The Edward Moringe (Main) campus is 3 km from the Morogoro town centre.
There are no scheduled air services to Morogoro town. Those arriving by air via Mwalimu Julius Nyerere International Airport (JNIA) can hire a Taxi/Travel Agency/Uber/Bolt to Magufuli Bus Terminal at Mbezi (in Dar es Salaam) for Morogoro bound buses. The most reliable buses are Abood Bus Service, BM Bus, and New Force. One can get mini buses but these are not recommended because of their dangerous high speeds. It takes about 4-5 hours by bus from Dar es Salaam to Morogoro. Upon arrival at Morogoro Bus Terminal (Msamvu), one can hire a taxi for about Tanzanian Shillings (TZS) 8,000-10,000/= to SUA Edward Moringe (formerly known as Main) campus.
If you do not have contact and need where to start, ask to be taken to the Office of the Dean of Students (situated in Central Administration Building – Ground Floor Room No. 009). The Dean of Students can be reached by the following number (023) 260 4245 or (023) 260 3411-14 during the working hours. The working hours are from 7.30 a.m. to 3.30 p.m., Monday to Friday. In a very exceptional case, the Dean of Students’ mobile number (+255 (0)786 667922) can be used.
