The Senate of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, at its sitting on Wednesday, 28th March 2018, endorsed the action, taken so far, by the University Management concerning unauthorized students living in the  University halls of residence.

OAU Orders Students Out Of Hostels, Announces New Resumption Date

The Public Relations Officer of the University, Mr. Abiodun Olarewaju, stated that the Professors, who are displeased at the rate of moral decadence among the students, urged the Professor Eyitope Ogunbodede-led administration to use all lawful means to enforce obedience to the school rules and regulations, so that “our students will be found worthy in learning and character; therefore be qualified to obtain our degrees, certificates and diplomas”.

Hence, the Senate has given the University Management the mandate to ask students, who are still resident in the halls, to vacate their apartments/rooms, latest by Friday, 30th March 2018.

It also added that any student, who is still illegally occupying any room within the University halls of residence, would be viewed to have violated his/her matriculation oath, and such a student will be sanctioned appropriately.

In a related development, the Senate has approved the change in the resumption date for the new calendar of 2017/2018 academic session.  The new students will now come into the residence on Sunday, 29th April 2018, instead of 3rd April that was earlier announced.

This is to give enough time for proper repair and comprehensive renovation of all the halls of residence in order to make it more comfortable for the students.
Parents and Guardians are hereby enjoined to take note of the new date and prepare their children/wards for resumption.
