student services

Computer facilities

The computer lab is available for the student to develop computer skills and access information.


Institute is connected with dialup connection during office hours.


The Institute Library has a reading space of 40 seats and capacity to hold about 30,000 volumes of books and journals. This Library is also identified as a WHO depository Library in the country and receives free WHO publications. Currently there are about 7000 volumes of reference books, journals and newsletters.

RIHS Library is linked to the computer lab via intranet to avail information resources worldwide.  Students have access to electronic information.

Hostel Facilities

There is a separate hostel for Boys and Girls located within the Institute compound with a capacity of little more than 100 beds each. There is a common kitchen, dining hall and prayer hall. Because of limited hostel space the first year Health Assistant and Medical technician have to find their own accommodation, however on completion of first year and on case by case if space is available the preference will be given to those with special problems.

Student Mess

The mess is managed by elected student representative. Students have to pay mess money of 650/month from their stipend. Any problem related to mess and hostels will be discussed with the Institute captain, warden and matron or Head of Student Affair.

Games and Sports

Due to space constraint in the capital, we have a limited recreational facility. There is one basketball/volleyball court, TT room and badminton court. Extra-curricular coordinators are responsible for organizing activities.

Guidance and counseling

To provide better guidance and support to our students each faculty were assign to group of students as their foster parents. Any issues related to academia, collage, personal can be discussed by the student with their foster parents. Beside foster parents, the students may approach any faculty member with whom they feel comfortable to seek help and guidance. All counselors will respect the values and feelings of the students.
