The University of Nairobi town campus is strategically located in the middle of the city, hence in cases of riot businesses and transportation are hugely disrupted.

In past experiences, the students have proven rowdy invoking the use of authorities and police to restore calm.

For instance, they have been captured during demonstrations destroying property and blocking roads in a bid to have their grievances met.
