OAU Freshers Fear Over Inability To Secure Accommodation

Following the activation of the request for accommodation for the Freshmen of the Obafemi Awolowo University, on Wednesday, 27th April 2016, many of the fresh students have not been able to secure accommodation on campus.

It was discovered that the portal started to bring the error message that "the Bedspace allotted to your faculty has been exhausted" in about 24 hours after its activation. This was mostly first experienced by the female fresh students and later by the male.

Ife, a female fresher in the College of Health Sciences lamented about the development saying "I don't know what to do now, I have been trying to get bedspace since last Thursday without any success and my Dad really wants me to live on campus".

Another female student, Grace also expressed disappointment at the inability of the relevant body to provide her with accommodation even after paying the required tuition fees.

However, it should be recalled that a similar incident occurred last year even though the portal was later reactivated for Bedspace request. Our correspondents have however initiated visits to appropriate quarters to know the exact state of things and the hope therein.

  1. What the heck is always wrong with this Oau self.. They said after we've paid for the acceptance fee then we can now apply for the Bedspace allocation now the story has changed to if you don't pay for the whole school fees #61,700, you cant apply for bedspace again... This is totally unfair.
