DU likely to reopen halls on limited scale from October 5

Dhaka University authorities are likely to reopen halls from October 5 for the master’s and honours final year students who have received at least one dose of vaccine against Covid.

The recommendation came from the provost committee meeting held at the university’s Vice-Chancellor (VC) bungalow this evening, said Prof Saiful Islam, provost of Sir AF Rahman Hall.

The meeting was chaired by DU VC Prof Aktheruzzaman.

The decision will be finalized after Thursday’s deans’ committee’s meeting.

Central library, department’ seminar rooms will also be reopened for the vaccinated ones from September 26.

“First students of master’s and honours final year would be allowed to stay in halls. Once their examinations are over, students of previous sessions will be allowed to enter halls gradually,” said Prof Saiful Islam said.

Asked about vaccination information, the professor said, “About 4000 students of 9000 honours final year and master’s students have taken their Covid-19 shots,”

DU proctor AKM Golam Rabbani said,”Unvaccinated students will not be allowed to enter the dormitories.”
