Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU New Procedure For Accommodation For 2017/2018 Session Released.
The Division of Student Affairs ( DSA ), Obafemi Awolowo University ( OAU ) released a new procedure for accommodation processes recently, stating how bed spaces will be allocated to students in the forthcoming 2017/2018 session.
Prior to this, the issue of accommodation has always been a major issue for many students of the University as the process of securing accommodation has been a very rigorous one which the majority of students eventually do not acquire.
The DSA in line with the decision of the school management has decided to reduce the number of bed spaces in each room, thereby reducing the population of students in the halls of residence.
The factor responsible for this decision is to reduce the number of students in each room and to allow convenience of students and for proper management of the halls of residence, which in turn would be an improvement in the living condition of the students in the halls of residence.
Consequently, the bed spaces provided will be limited and accommodation is therefore not guaranteed for any student. This decision is favourable towards the fresh students (first year students) and the final year students; however, securing accommodation will be based on first – come, first – served application.
However, there will be no special request for bed spaces either by staff or students. The DSA advises every student to look out for information concerning accommodation on the E- portal, the #OAU website and the DSA notice board before the session 2016/2017 comes to an end.
