National College of Tourism – Arusha Campus was established in 1993 by the harms Seidel Foundation of Munich Germany and the Arusha Municipal Council with the aim of providing appropriate vocational skills to students who would like to seek a career in the hotel industry. The college has been taken over by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism on 4th July 2008 as part of its National College of Tourism.


The college is a member of AHSA (Association of Hotel Schools in Africa). Our mission along with the association is to promote an exchange of knowledge and experience amongst other member schools in order to attain the highest standards in hospitality training and also puts the college at almost similar level with other internationally recognized hotel schools.

The college also cooperated with Kaveibrogymnasiet a hotel and restaurant school in Skovde, Sweden. The aim of this cooperation was to expose both students and staff of NCT – Arusha and Kaveibrogymnasiet to the culture of the two countries, and also share experience and knowledge, in the hospitality industry.

NCT offers services which include outdoor catering for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, send offs, baptisms, conferences/seminars and supplying of bread, cakes to individuals and supermarkets in Arusha as a means of generating funds and expose our students to business environment.
