It has also banned earrings, necklaces, sleeveless and open top and other jewelry.

The 70-year-old university warns of possible disciplinary action against students who will violate the guidelines.

“No student should come back with the above mentioned next semester. Culprits will face university disciplinary committee for serious action,” an excerpt of the notice, dated December 12, 2018, read.

“We have been taking these students through these rules, especially during their orientations but to our disappointment, some of them end up falling culprits of indecent dressing,” the university dean of students, George Mupaghasi told Ugandan media, New Vision in an interview.

“We have done this because in case any of our students get a problem along the way, we are held accountable so, we need to protect them as we reserve the positive image of the institution as well,” Mupaghasi said.

“We need these students to dress in a respectful manner as stipulated in our university handbook” he added.

Bugema University began as a training school for teachers and pastors for the Seventh-day Adventist Church in 1948. It later changed its name from Bugema Missionary Training School to Bugema Missionary College and subsequently to Bugema Adventist College.

In 1976, the institution was cleared by the Ministry of education and sports, and the General Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist, to start offering bachelor’s degrees in different disciplines, said the New Vision. The institution is now called Bugema University.
