This study investigates the challenges un-enabling environments that face the Higher education institutions in Mogadishu, Somalia since the collapse of the central authority in 1991. Since all educational systems and infrastructure have been destroyed by the civil war, the study seeks to explore the negative consequences of unenabling environment on university education, to explore how unenabling environment affects students, Lecturers. A descriptive cross-sectional survey design guided the study and primary data was collected using structured questionnaires. Respondents classified into strata from which they were chosen randomly. The study population was 255 and a sample size of 179 was got using Slovene’s formula for generating sample size. The study revealed on respondent’s characteristics after analysis using frequencies and percentage distribution showed that majority of the respondents were male, a high portion of respondents were the age bracket of 27-32, most of the respondents were degree Holders and Predominant in the length of service were those workers serving below 5 years. The findings revealed that the highest correlation lies between students missing lectures, students not getting access to skilled lectures and students themselves fear political instabilities and the chaos environment. There is a low correlation between the variables of no skilled workers would like to work in harsh conditions, and the missed access to university cafes by students for research. Table further indicates a moderate correlation between the missing of services like university library and the decline of university education in three selected universities in Mogadishu Somalia. Recommendation for Future Study; though the study has added significant knowledge to literature, further research is needed. An area in which further research needs to be done is the issue of the need of higher education quality insurance agencies in the country
