Hence, students should do well to observe the following:

  • Conduct themselves decently and responsibly at all times, whether on or away from BUIB’s campus.
  • No student shall engage his/her fellow student or any member of the institution or public in physical conflicts.
  • Though students are not allowed to be exorbitantly dressed, they are expected to be modest, neat and presentable at all times especially when it concerns formal academic routines like class lectures, clinical and national celebrations/events.
  • All students should contribute to the general cleanliness of the facilities put at their disposal. Thus, they should avoid littering the campus/classrooms and should make maximum use of the trash cans available.
  • No item or furniture belonging to BUIB should be damaged or moved out of the campus without due permission. Consequently, the full cost of lost or damaged property will be borne by the student concerned.
  • The auxiliary staff members of BUIB (security guards, cleaners, technicians, drivers, etc.) are responsible officers of the university. Hence, no student should, on any account insult or assault them. Any student aggrieved or hurt by any employee of BUIB should make a report of their grievance(s) to the Head of Department for Students’ Affairs who shall pursue the matter with the appropriate quarters concerned.
  • Students are cautioned not to smoke, consume dangerous drugs or liquor, and move with dangerous weapons, steal, or engage in any criminal practice in and out of school that will attract the disciplinary wrath of the school. Any case which involves the forces of law and order will not be the concern of BUIB.

NB: There shall be a conduct assessment (for the School of Health only) at the end of each academic year. The numeric score of this assessment will be recorded in the student’s transcript. The BUIB Senate reserves the right to take a decision on students whose conduct scores are below 50%.
