To meet the study, teaching, research and outreach information needs for sustainable national and regional development.

Makerere University Printery has been in operation since 1969. It has been operating as a Service Unit for the University beginning in the main library as photographic service unit.

It was not until 1971 that the Norwegian Agency for International Development (NORAD) extended financial support in form of formidable Printing equipment. This led to its relocation to the basement of the Main Building.

Makerere University is home to a fully fledged Police Station with officers of the Uganda Police Force who regularly patrol the campus. The Police Officers work closely with Campus Security personnel to maintain law and order as well as man security checks at the campus and building entrances.

The Office

The Chief Security Officer, who reports to the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Finance and Administration), is the overall in-charge of Campus security. He is assisted by the OC Station Makerere University Police as well as other Deputies.

In 2001, a group of visionary women and men proposed the idea of institutionalizing gender in Makerere University’s functions. That led to the birth of the Gender Mainstreaming Programme, under the Department of the Academic Registrar, where it was nurtured to maturity.
