Abstract A cross sectional study was conducted between January and September 2013 in Kampala international university to determine the utilisation of HIV prevention services at Kampala International University Teaching Hospital KIUTH by students of Kampala International University. This study specifically aimed at determining the proportion of students accessing condoms from Kampala International University, describing the range and scope of HIV preventive services that students of KIU are accessing from Kampala International University Teaching Hospital and determining the factors barring students from accessing HIV care services from KIUTH. The study found out that majority of the respondents at least knew of services available from KIUTH meant of HIV prevention. Of the services the most known, 24.7% was health education and condom 20.8%, the study also found out that majority (82.37%) of the students has accessed at least one of the HIV preventive services from KIUTH. And, it was concluded that personal preference (24.1%), inconvenience of the service, 22%, cost of the service 22% and the waiting time (18.9%) were the most common factors hindering the utilization of HIV preventive services by students of KIU. It was concluded from this study that the proportion of students accessing HIV services from KIUTH is low compared to the general populations of the students, Health Education, Condom Distribution, HIV counseling and testing, Safe Male Circumcision, Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission of HIV Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy and Provider Initiated Counseling were among HIV preventing services provided by KIUTH, and the most utilized service by students were Condom and Health education and that stigma was the most important factor barring students from accessing HIV preventive services from KIUTH. And finally, this study recommended that the hospital should provide HIV preventive services in a friendly environment so that students could utilize them, the university should have a counselor specifically for the students so that the students would be encouraged to come for testing and counseling and finally that another study should look into details of the conclusions raised by this study so that there is enough evidence to improve HIV preventive services for the student at KIU.
