The National University of Rwanda (NUR, french UNR) is the largest university in Rwanda. It is located at Butare and was established in 1963 by the government in cooperation with the Congregation of the Dominicans from the Province of Quebec. April-July 1994: The University community lost a good number of its staff and students who were killed during the war and genocide. They were victims of their ideology or ethnic identity. The University suffered a great loss: laboratory equipment, the computer equipment and academic infrastructure were destroyed or taken away. NUR was closed because of the prevailing war in the country, those who were not killed had to hide themselves, and others fled in exile.
