University accommodation is not guaranteed for all students. The University accommodation policy is adhered to when allocating rooms to students in the University hostels. Those allocated rooms shall be required sign a contract at the beginning of the academic year. In the room, a student is provided with a bed and mattress. Students are expected to comply with the students’ by-laws regarding campus accommodation.
- STUDENT'S GOVERNMENT
Like other institutions of higher learning in Tanzania, the University has a Student Organization, known as the St. Augustine University of Tanzania Students Organization (SAUTSO). All registered students are automatically members and enjoy all the rights and privileges granted to this body. A students’ government fee of Tshs. 3000 (or US$ 3) is paid by each student. Foreign students also have their own advisory body known as the Foreign Students’ Body (FSB), through which they can forward their grievances and suggestions.
SAUTSO should be very vocal on issues relating to improving the quality of the University and avoid defending students who violate University Regulations and Students By-Laws. Students’ representation allows for students views to be heard and assist the University in making decisions that take into account student welfare.
Students are urged to abide by the representation principle by showing trust in those who represent them and to avoid conduct that makes it difficult for representatives to discharge their responsibilities for fear of being misunderstood.
- SPORTS AND RECREATION
SAUT has facilities for sports and recreation allowing students to participate in popular indoor and outdoor games such as football, basketball, volleyball, netball, badminton and darts. With the assistance of the Dean of Students, the Students’ Sports Committee arranges and conducts sports programmes and participation in outside competitions. On special occasions, films are shown to members of the SAUT community. Students can also arrange, through the SAUTSO Social Welfare Ministry, social functions such as dances, drama, and so forth.
