Life on Campus


The philosophy of the Food Services is to serve promptly, graciously a variety of culturally acceptance food in an attractive, pleasant atmosphere. The food service follows the Muteesa I Royal University concepts on health which stresses a diet that excludes the use of strong spices. This type of diet has been scientifically proven healthful and beneficial. The University Cafeteria charges for meals on a flat rate plan, which allows for the normal three meals per day in the basic boarding to the last day of final examination each semester. Students remaining during vacation periods are charged a daily boarding fee. A meal schedule shall be posted in the cafeteria for the students’ information


  • Non-resident students may take arrangements with the Bursar’s Office if they wish to take meals in the University Cafeteria Only Persons with these arrangements are permitted to have meals in the cafeteria. To contravene this rule is a serious offense which will lead to a financial disciplinary action.
  • There will be no refund for meals not eaten
  • Taking food and/or drinks outside the University Cafeteria is STRICTLY PROHIBITED
  • Food for a sick student may be taken out by written request from the residence Deans or their appointees to the management of food service
  • The kitchen is out of bounds for students who do not work there. Non-boarding students or visitors who obtain free meals without authorization from the University Administration will be fined the whole semester cost for Boarding
  • For official weekend outings, packed lunches may be available provided notice is given at a reasonable time.
  • Visitors may pay at the University Cafeteria at the time they take meals
  • Students are required to produce identification (meal cards) automatically without the checker’s request each time they report for meals
