The Board of Trustees of the Makerere University Endowment Fund has made construction of a state of the art students center their premier development project.On the occasion of celebrating centennial Anniversary (100 years), Makerere University is raising a $15 million project through the alumni, well-wishers and development partners to develop a student’s centre. The Students Centre reflects our unwavering commitment to improving both the students’ academic experience and quality of life through having a conducive environment while at University. The centre will serve to nurture the economic, social and cultural ethos of all students that go through the gates of Makerere University.
Over the past two decades the University has strived to improve its academic environment and the infrastructure put up have been towards this endeavour. The Students’ Centre will serve as the collective place that reflects the dynamism of the 21st century student in the digital age. It will correct the imbalance in access to socio-cultural amenities that was created by the increase in student numbers. The Centre will act as the crucible for student life at Makerere University. It is the one stop information centre and a recreation place for the students. The auditorium, instructional spaces, banking halls and commercial entities will be the best-equipped and most accessible spaces available to the greater Makerere University community. The facility will serve as an inspiration of organizational longevity and continuity. The Centre is one of our strategies to create a versatile and holistic graduate of Makerere University.
