The authorities of the University of Ibadan has set June 20 as resumption date after the institution had been shut for two months.
The University of Ibadan was shut in April during a students’ protest against poor electricity and water supply.
At the end of a meeting of the Committee of Provost, Deans and Directors, the varsity’s Governing Council directed on Thursday that students should return to their halls of residence on June 15.
It said in a statement that “the University Administration will hold an interactive session with the students body to bring the students’ attention to their matriculation oath as well as the importance of the Students Information Handbook.”
The council also resolved that upon resumption for the new academic calendar, the students would be required to sign a mandatory undertaking to be of good behaviour.
The form to be signed has already been posted on the varsity’s website, it said.
It also directed an immediate release of funds to the various Departments for practicals and examinations and an upward review of accommodation fees for the students.
The council stated that it recognised the need for regular interaction with the students and that of employing a means of intelligence gathering by the school’s authorities.
It directed the varsity’s authorities to also find a way to improve on power and water supply on campus.
