Makerere University has priced shs145,000 on halls as an offer for non-residents finalists who would like to stay at the University halls. The University at the beginning decided to only open a few halls to ensure proper enforcement of the standard operating procedures. However, they have now chosen to open all the halls so as to extend a hand to the privately sponsored students.
Cyriaco Kabagembe, the Makerere University dean of students said all the University halls will be functioning till December this year. Each room will accommodate only one student as a way of following the ministry of health guidelines.
This will however start after the government sponsored students have occupied their space in the halls. The finalists will then occupy the remaining.
Students were very happy with this decision by the University leadership. This is because the hostels outside campus are extravagantly expensive and yet the semester is really short.
Aside from that, there has been an economic crisis all over the nation. Obviously the students are not in position to afford the hostels outside campus.
On a brighter side though, if the University could afford to accommodate all the finalists in the University Halls, it would be much better. This is so because monitoring for any Covid case would be easy. The university will encamp all students in one place.
