Male residents of the Mensah Sarbah and Commonwealth halls at the University of Ghana will lose their residency for the 2022/23 academic year over the recent clashes on campus.
This was contained in a communique from the University’s management on Wednesday, December 14, 2022.
The statement indicated that the affected students would be randomly assigned to available rooms in the private hostels on the university’s campus.
“All continuing students of Commonwealth Hall and continuing male students of Mensa Sarbah Hall will not return to these halls, or to any of the traditional halls.
“They are to be randomly assigned to available rooms in any of the UGEL and private hostels. Continuing female students of Mensah Sarbah Hall and students with special needs in both halls will not be affected by this measure,” the statement said.
The statement further added that only first-year and post-graduate students will be given rooms in the Commonwealth and Mensah Sarbah halls from next academic year.
“Beginning from the 2022/2023 academic year, only Level 100 and graduate students (Masters and PhD level) will be assigned to Mensah Sarbah and Commonwealth Halls.
“Subsequently, undergraduate students will vacate the halls at the end of Level 100 and may secure accommodation in the private hostels from Level 200 until completion.
“Level 100 students who opt for traditional halls will be randomly assigned to the halls.”
