Obafemi Awolowo University

The Management of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) has announced the new resumption date of activities for 2017/2018 academic session.

The Senate of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, at its sitting today, Wednesday, 28th March, 2018, has endorsed the action, taken so far, by the University Management over the issue of students’ unauthorized occupation of the rooms in the halls of residence.

A release by the Public Relations Officer of the University, Mr. Abiodun Olarewaju, stated that the Professors, who frowned 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.

 Accordingly, 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 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.
