The origins of the National University of Lesotho go back to 1945, when a Catholic University College was founded at Roma by the Roman Catholic Hierarchy of Southern Africa. In 1975, the National University was founded as the heir to the Pius XII University College and the University of Botswana, Lesotho and Swaziland (U.B.L.S.). It is situated at Roma, about 35 kilometers south-east of Maseru, the capital of Lesotho. Visit NUL’s website>>
