Dhaka University (DU) has decided to reopen its dormitories partially only for honours final year and master’s examinees from the first week of March.
The proposal was taken at a meeting of the provost standing committee on Tuesday with Vice-chancellor (VC) Professor Md Akhtaruzzaman in the chair.
Considering Covid-19 pandemic, a proposal has been made to reopen the halls gradually only for the honours final year and master’s students, said Proctor Rabbani.
However, the proposal will be sent to Deans’ Committee and Academic Council. The final decision will be made there.
DU Pro-VC (Academic) Professor Maksud Kamal, DU Pro-VC (Administration) Professor Mohammad Samad, provosts of different halls, deans of different faculties and teachers were present in the meeting.
