IU students demand reopening of residential dormitories before exams – Education – observerbd.com
The students of Islamic University (IU) on Friday demanded reopening of residential dormitories before sitting for exams amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Student organisations including IU unit Bangladesh Chhatra Union, Chhatra Maitree, and different non-aligned bodies issued a press release to voice their demand.
They said students must be provided with residential facilities, health protection, and transport facilities to prepare for exams.
Bangladesh Chhatra Union IU unit President Nurunnabi Islam Sabuj said that the decision of holding exams while keeping the halls shut was irrational.
“There are not enough accommodation facilities around the university. We expect that the university will take the exams after ensuring residential facilities.”
However, IU Vice-Chancellor Professor Shaikh Abdus Salam told UNB that they would reopen the halls after getting directives from the higher authorities.
On December 22, the university decided to hold exams of the final year and masters.
