On campus, there are several associations bringing together students from similar background, for spiritual, cultural, and social growth and development. Joining any of these associations is voluntary but advisable.
Within the Mulago National Referral Hospital, close to the school, there are places of worship; a mosque, a Roman Catholic church and an Anglican church.
The School of Public Health is located within Mulago National Referral Hospital complex, a walkable distance from the Main University Campus. The school campus is close to Wandegeya; a busy town with student friendly services, like eateries; student hostels, hair parlours, supermarkets and a fresh produce market.
Transport from Kampala city centre is by matatu (commuter taxi) and largely affordable. Alternatively, one can travel by boda boda (motor-cycle) although this is not very advisable given the manner in which the riders go about their business. However, if you must use one caution the cyclist on reckless speed and carelessness. Carry along a crash helmet as well.
Night life in Kampala is vibrant, with several nigh clubs and discotheques, some offering theme nights for students. Caution is necessary to avoid over-indulgence that may result into complications like unwanted pregnancies, STIs including HIV/AIDS, substance abuse and criminal acts.
Kampala Night Life is vibrant with numerous options that include pubs and bars, night clubs and discotheques, prayer places and more
