UIAs the University of Ibadan gets ready for the 2012/2013 academic session, which is scheduled to begin on Monday, 14 January, fresh and returning students of the University have been advised to disregard any information asking them to pay more than N14,OOO as accommodation fee.

The decision was reached by the University Management, following a stakeholders’ meeting held with leadership of the Students’ Union at all levels on Tuesday, December 18, 2012. Though the students leadership agreed to an increase in the accommodation fee from N14,000 to between N20,000-N22,000 per session, the Vice Chancellor, Professor Isaac F. Adewole, however, stated that the accommodation fee should remain at N14,000.00

The VC further stated that despite the non provision of subvention for accommodation in halls of residence for Federal Universities, the University of Ibadan had continued to subsidise accommodation fees for its students, which he admitted, had become a big burden.

He also disclosed that despite the shortage of funds, the accommodation fee for the 2012/2013 academic session would not be increased as being speculated and therefore, urged the students to pay N14,000.00 the amount paid for accommodation the previous session.
