UDSM Undergraduate Fees Structure

The idea of the University was breached in the 1958 Annual General Meeting of TANU. It was proposed by Mr. Amos Kesenge the then TANU General Secretary.

He said “people of Tanganyika are the ones with thirst and hunger for education. Education is the key in the development of people’s life in this country and for a better national development there should be people with education, knowledge and wisdom”.

Members agreed that the University should be out of party politics and so everyone should contribute in kind and cash.

Contribution for building this University started by Tanganyika African Newspaper Company Limited by organising a football match and all the money collected was deposited in the university basket fund.

In the winning cup handing ceremony, Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere, TANU Chairman, requested people to join the efforts of establishing a University to avoid depending on foreign Universities which were very expensive and had different ideologies.

He urged TANU members to contribute Tsh 50/= each while others contributed Tsh. 2/= each. Up to 16th March 1958 the university fund had Tsh 1,971/=. The following is the list of some of the people who contributed in cash.


“To become a leading Centre of Intellectual Wealth spearheading the Quest for Sustainable and Inclusive Development”


“The University of Dar es Salaam will advance the economic, social and technological development of Tanzania and beyond through excellent teaching and learning, research and knowledge exchange”


Hekima ni Uhuru (Wisdom is Freedom)
