Following the commencement of application for accommodation by final year students few weeks ago,the Division of Students Affairs through the office of its Vice Dean, B.S. Afolabi (PhD) recently made a release on the University's order of priority for accommodation. It follows thus;
(b) Final Year students
(c) Foreign students
(d) Students suffering from medical &physical disabilities endorsed by director of Medical services
(e) Medical (Clinical), students
(f)sportsmen and women recommended by the chairman of sports council
(g) Other Categories of students if possible
It was also stated in the release that there are just 9,500 bedspaces available in all halls of residence for more than 30,000 students in which freshmen coming in are about 7,500 with about 5,000 final year students.
The implication of this is if normal procedure is followed, the total number of bedspaces available will not be sufficient for all the freshmen & final year students.
It was therefore concluded that the modus operandi for accommodation for this session will be based and on first come first served.
We hereby advise all students, especially the Freshmen, to be on the lookout for the hostel registration.
