Ndejje University is the oldest private university in Uganda with so far two campuses; with the main campus in Luwero and the Kampala campus in Mengo along Bulintuma road. Similarly to UCU, Ndejje as a Christian founded university has several regulations and norms fresher’s are expected to adhere to. A closer look at these regulations is what makes Ndejje the university it is. Campusbee today takes a look into some of the rules of Ndejje University.
Tuition Fees and Lecture attendance.
To be eligible to register at the beginning of the semester, one has to duly pay 60% of the tuition for that semester. Lectures are attended with lecture cards that enable you attend lectures according to the amount of fees paid. If one does not pay all fees in time, he or she is charged late clearance fees and late registration a fee most students consider unfair.
This is the deadliest and most punishable crime followed by participation in strikes. Once caught cheating, the students are expelled or given a hefty fine and rewarded with dead years almost equivalent to the person being taken back to first year.
Though it is not a big issue, students are expected to dress decently and miniskirts are not allowed at campus. Male students are prohibited from wearing hats or caps during lectures as well as piecing their ears and putting on earrings.
Fines are everywhere and a must pay for being caught in wrong. Fluking to eat meals which one has not paid for is severely punishable, damaging university property like library books, computers and facilities is as well a big crime and one can pay a fine bigger than his or her tuition fees.
Non Resident rule.
All students are expected to reside in the university halls and hostels. All first year students must reside in the university hostels. Only a few second year students are officially allowed to be nonresidents. To become a nonresident, one has to apply to the administration.
The only students who reside in hostels outside campus are those from Kampala campus in Mengo.
Feeding and Cooking
Students are NOT allowed to cook in the halls of residence. If caught, one is severely punished. All meals are prepared by the university and meals have to be taken from the university Dinning Hall. To your rescue, there are Rolex and kikomando points around campus with some small restaurants. Food is cheap in the area with a plate of food going for only 2k to 3,500k
