Busitema University offers limited accommodation to students. Upon admission to the University, prospective students have an option to book with the Dean of Students office and the available rooms are allocated on first come, first serve basis.
Students who do not get accommodation within the University are housed at privately owned hostel facilities. However, the Dean of Students Department assists in identifying suitable and conducive hostels, and ensuring that welfare and security of students in hostels are protected. These hostels are within close proximity to the University and have been accredited by the University.
The University does not cook for its students, however arrangements with catering service providers were made to ensure to it that food is prepared for students at friendly rate. Government sponsored students are given their feeding and living allowances quarterly so that they can find and accommodation at a price of their convenience.
