Students are reminded to have their Medical Aid Cards and Student cards on them always.

Medical Aid

All students are required to register with Maisha and Cimas and they pay a fee of USD 30 per semester, as part of their semester fees. For this, the student is issued with a Medical Aid Card, which can be used to access health services at government, mission, and municipal hospitals or clinics in Zimbabwe. However, in cases of emergency such as a need for cancer treatment or heart surgery, the University may facilitate the treatment of students in private foreign health institutions.
