Dhaka University will reopen residential dormitories from October first week for final year and Masters students and rest of students will be welcomed back to halls by mid-November.
Students were advised to take covid-19 Vaccine by 15 September.
The proposal came after a meeting attended by provosts of the dormitories. However, further decisions will be finalized on Tomorrow deans committee meeting.
Speaking to UNB, Prof KM Saiful Islam Khan, provost of Sir AF Rahman Hall, said almost 80% of the renovations at the hall had been completed and they would be ready to reopen by the first week of October.
Prof Saiful said they want to initially open halls for the masters and final year students. After completing the semester final within two weeks, they would leave the dormitories and the rest of students will be welcomed at the dormitories gradually.
The exams will be taken physically as arranging virtual exams is not possible, He added, saying as many as 25% students of the university were not able to follow their classes due to having poor internet coverage in remote villages.
DU vice-chancellor (VC) Prof Dr M Akhtaruzzaman said: “Provost standing committee proposed to reopen dormitories but further decision will be taken tomorrow deans committee meeting,"
“We need to know the overall condition of the halls. In line with the discussion, the reopening of the university as well as halls will be considered,” he added.
