More information about student life and ser¬vices follows:
Bugema University operates a bakery, an adequately equipped kitchen, and a cafeteria offering a balanced vegetarian diet. Since there are no eating facilities in the residence halls, as residence hall students are encouraged to take their meals in the cafeteria. No provision is made for food preparation in the rooms. The cost of three meals a day is included in the boarding fees. Students living in hostels make their own arrangements for their meals. The university operates a snack center and there are privately owned restaurants near campus.
Housing and Accommodation
Female students who do not live either with their parents or spouses are encouraged to live in residence halls on campus. In each room, beds and other basic conveniences are provided, but students are expected to provide their own mattresses and bedding. Male students who do not live either with their parents or spouses may live in one of a number of private residence facilities approved by the university which are located near the campus. There are no facilities for married student housing.
Each residence hall student is issued with a key to the room at the time of entrance and is to return the key when moving out. A student who loses the key will be charged a replacement fee equivalent to the current cost.
At the end of each semester, the room will be checked for reasonable cleanli¬ness and any damage. Where necessary, charges for extra cleaning and/or repairs will be made to the student’s account. Non-residents are not permit¬ted to use the facilities in the residence halls.
Room and board fee will be charged to students remaining on campus during vacation. Those intending to stay should apply a month before school closes each semester.
