Health and Medical Facilitation at EASTC

Each student is required to contribute to a small medical fund. The fund is used to meet costs of treatment at the nearby University of Dar es Salaam Health Centre, Government clinics and hospitals.  Upon medical advice some cases may be referred to some designated private hospitals. Costs of very serious cases are referred to the sponsors.

For ease of convinience and in case of emergency, EASTC students are encouraged to make sure that they have enough pocket money to take care of their medical and health needs.


Religious Life at EASTC

Although Tanzania is a secular state constitutionally, the laws of the country however respect the religious beliefs of all human beings.

Fortunately, EASTC is located within the Changanyikeni community in such a way that all major religious worship houses are within walking distance from the students’ hostels. The Students Dean’s Office is ready to give you information relating to religious matters around the place. However, all religious issues and practices are strictly personal and private.
