Student Welfare and Students Support Services
Right from the time of arrival a student is welcomed with a process of induction into various aspects of the Polytechnic’s life. This begins with registration after which those in need of accommodation are appropriately helped. There are limited facilities in both the Boy’s and Girl’s Hostels. General Catering Services are also provided but only in the Main Campus. What follows next is a broad orientation of the Polytechnic’s rules and regulations pertaining to the conduct and behaviour of students. Co-curricular, spiritual, as well as general guidance and counselling programmes are well provided. A critical objective of the above endeavours is to inculcate a culture of care to society and responsible dialogue with stakeholders. Ultimately, there will be an added value element and the enhancement of the Kasese Youth Polytechnic public image. The Patron of Students is responsible for students’ social welfare, students’ development programmes, students’ organizations and the Chaplaincy services. The Polytechnic has developed a comprehensive range of support services and resources for the benefit of students. They are described as below:
The Polytechnic’s has 3 hostels providing accommodation for male and female students. In Kasese, there is a growing number of hostels in the Town which are privately owned.
