Uganda Christian University, our host and partner institution, has a dress code that also relates to appearance issues of tattoos, piercings and extreme hairstyles such as dreadlocks. USP encourages students with visible tattoos (especially any on the arms, neck or face that are not easily covered by clothing), excessive piercings (i.e., visible piercings that are not on the ear or a single nose piercing), or extreme hairstyles to contact us for more specific information ([email protected]).
