OAU Releases New Guidelines For Accommodation
DIVISION OF STUDENT AFFAIRS
OBAFEMI AWOLOWO UNIVERSITY, ILE-IFE
2017/2018 SESSION STUDENT HOSTEL
In line with the decision of the University authority to improve the living condition of Students in the Halls of Residence, the Division of Student Affairs is hereby informing all the Students that there will be a reduction in the number of bed spaces in each of the rooms in the Halls of Residence: Consequent to this, bed space allocations will be limited and will follow a democratic process. ‘Accommodation
Allocation’ is not automatic for any student, however special consideration will be given to freshers(new students) and final year students for limited spaces based on a first-come, first-served on-line application and balloting process.
Following this arrangement, there will be no special request for bed space either by students or staff – PLEASE DO NOT VISIT THE
DSA FOR THIS PURPOSE. All students will be given an opportunity to ballot for bed space. About 50% of final year students and likewise freshers would likely be given accommodation based on balloting. However, any student who fails to secure bed space through this balloting process will have to look elsewhere for his or
her own accommodation because squatting will not be allowed.
Students are advised to watch out on the E-Portal, University website and DSA notice boards for information in respect of the balloting exercise for bed spaces before the end of the 2016/2017 Session.
