The rate of HIV VCT among the youth is persistently low with studies showing that only a small proportion of youth had undergone VCT in Kenya (KDHS, 2003;Adam and Mutungi,2007; LVCT, 2007). Although various studies showed that there is high level of awareness among the youth with majority acknowledging the importance of VCT, there was need to investigate the probable reasons for low uptake of VCT amongst university students. This study aimed at determining the factors associated with the uptake of the service at MKU was paramount to informing ways of improving the reach and quality of VCT services among the University going students.
