The management of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) has released a notice on accommodation application for new and returning students. See details on the notice has released by the management below.
Sequel to the earlier release on accommodation for students for the forthcoming 2019/2020 Session, it is important to note that, traditionally, both Freshers and Final year students are often given priority for consideration. The University Management has no intention to depart from this practice. However, it would be unfair to ignore the reality of insufficient bed spaces for the students in this category and go ahead to make students unprepared against the likelihood of not getting bed spaces because of the limited bed spaces on campus. This is not to say that only Freshers would be accommodated on campus, but it is obvious that few bed spaces would likely be leftover for final year students to contest for.
Thus, the previous release was intended to get everyone informed about the slim chance any Stalelite student would have in getting a bed space and therefore prepare for a possible alternative.
The University Management is taking strong and urgent steps to secure the immediate use of the newly constructed hostels at Parakin Area, while significant progress has also been made in the overall plan for additional bed spaces, through the construction of new hostel facilities.
We, therefore, appeal to all students to bear with us in managing these limited facilities. We wish all our students a prosperous new year.
This is to inform ALL STUDENTS in all the Halls of residence that they should vacate the hostel with all their personal belongings on or before the 31st of December, 2019. Any personal effect left behind carelessly or deliberately will not be accounted for by the DSA or the school management.
The Division of Student Affairs, however, wishes to inform students who are on SIWES, Teaching Practice, and those in the College of Health Sciences who have legitimate Academic/Clinical reasons to stay behind to go through their Heads of Department or Deans for possible consideration.
In addition, all STALELITES should note there are no bed spaces for them on campus hence, there will no balloting for accommodation for the coming session (2019/2020), only FRESHERS will be given consideration.
The Division of Student Affairs wishes all Students Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year in advance.
