Abstract : Urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection in the urinary tract and caused by bacteria such as Escherichia coli. The objective of the study was to assess the level of awareness and health consequences of UTI the students at the Islamic University in Uganda (IUIU). The study used a cross-sectional research design in which a quantitative statistical technique was adopted. In pursuit of this study, two hundred and fifty (250) questionnaires were administered randomly to students in both male and female hostels. Statistical techniques (frequencies and percentages, t-test and chi-square) were used to analyze data collected using the statistical package for social sciences (SPSS) software and EXCEL. The findings of the study established that there is a low level of awareness of students on environmental hygiene but a high level of awareness of the consequences of UTI especially when not treated. The study, therefore, recommends that the University management should improve the orientation programs given to students on issues of environmental hygiene.
