This study investigated ICT and learning at KIU. This was after the realization that ICTs play a major role in university education. lCTs facilitate an individual to access education and learning information from anywhere any time (e.g., by single click on the keypad after the emergence of the mobile computers, mobile phones and web technologies). The study specifically sought to achieve the following objectives: to establish the types of lCTs used for learning at KIU; to examine the role of ICTs learning at KIU; and to find out the challenges faced using ICTs in learning at KIU. The study design took the form of a case study design and purposive sampling in which the data sought were qualitative. A sample of 50 respondents was selected for the study. The data were collected using interviews and observations [for primary data] and documents analysis [for secondary data]. Data were qualitatively analysed by the literal description, narration and quoting in verbatim. This was followed by content analysis in order to make conclusions with great authenticity. The study established that the types of ICTs used for learning at KIU included: Internet, telephone and mass media [TV, radio and newspapers]. Further, the study found out that the role of ICTs in learning at KIU included: provision of information, medium for advertising and marketing, customer- management relations and growth of c-tourism. The study also established that the challenges faced using ICTs in learning at KIU included: the infrastructural bottlenecks in ICTs and the lack of know how and capacity in ICT training
