The mission of the Student Welfare Department is to promote the welfare of all students at the college and make the environment conducive to learning.

Medical Services

The College has a Health Clinic with two consultation rooms and a dispensary. Two nurses (Senior Nursing Sister and a Nursing Sister) run the clinic and if they feel that some cases require specialised medical attention then they refer such cases to Government Clinics and or Princess Marina Hospital in Gaborone. There is always a nurse on call during the night as well as weekends and holidays. The Nursing Sister is also qualified in Psychiatric matters and students who have mentally related disturbances see him.

The primary aim of the College Clinic is to provide quality health care to all the students and to a lesser extent to members of staff. The College clinic mainly functions as an outpatient facility. Cases that need a doctor or hospitalisation are referred to larger clinics or the Princess Marina hospital in Gaborone. The activities of the Clinic include:

• consultations
• treatment of wounds and minor injuries
• counselling for physical, social, and mental health problems
• family planning

Counselling Services

The Senior Nursing Sister is Psychiatric Nurse by profession and the Nursing Sister a Midwife.

The other counsellors from the university of Botswana are trained psychologists, spiritual and guidance counsellors.
