Student Welfare Services

The Dean of Students office works closely with the security department to ensure continuous safety to all students. This has made the University environment a secure and perfect place for students to study. Patrols are done both during the day and night to contain any unwarranted situations. The  university also provides high quality medical services.

Students with individual problems or concerns are advised to avail themselves of these services. All matters presented on a personal level to the Guidance and Counseling Office are treated in strict confidence.

Most of our students are needy. We strive to identify donors and well-wishers whom we can partner with to offer these students financial support that can enable them pursue and complete their education on time. We also liaise with various government agencies to offer loans and grants to such students who meet the requirements to benefit from such financial aids. The Dean of Students Office encourages such students to apply for work study programme to earn something to supplement their upkeep.

With the establishment of Chaplaincy, the Dean of Students Office encourages students to acquire spiritual knowledge, and respect each other’s denomination
