Mbarara University of Science and Technology also known as MUST lies on the banks of the scenic meandering Rwizi River a tributary of Lake Victoria in Mbarara Municipality along the Kabale highway, 286 kilometers, southwest of Kampala, the capital city of Uganda. As one of the main Rivers in the region, the Rwizi is a source of water for thousands of local people and their livestock. Snaking through the famous hills of southwestern Uganda, the Rwizi was always a beautiful river that brought pride to the people in the area due to its sky blue waters and the purposes they served. Today the Rwizi’s waters are brown because of sedimentation.
MUST is a thriving residential campus and community where Students live in ‘villages’. On campus are two halls of residence popularly referred to as the Gents and Ladies flats. The rest of the student population live around the University campus in private but accredited hostel facilities by the Dean of Students office in collaboration with the Mbarara District Police station. – See more at: http://www.must.ac.ug/about-must#sthash.q1WunyCm.dpuf
