Students yet to register for the Covid-19 vaccine must do so by September 30

Students of honours final year and master’s courses may be allowed to return to the Dhaka University dormitories on October 5, upon showing a proof that they received at least the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.

The Provost Standing Committee, comprising all the 18 hall provosts of DU, made the recommendation during a meeting chaired by Vice Chancellor Prof Akhtaruzzaman on Wednesday evening.

Sir AF Rahman Hall Provost KM Saiful Islam Khan confirmed the matter to this newspaper, and said the decision would be approved at the meeting of the Academic Council on Thursday.

“The honours final year and master’s students must leave the dormitories after finishing their semester final examinations. After that, honours students in their first, second, and third years will be given the opportunity to return to dorms,” he added.

“The committee also recommended reopening the central library and the seminar libraries of the departments from September 26, and the time frame will be 10am-5pm,” Prof Saiful, a teacher of Persian language and literature, said.  

The committee also recommended that students who are yet to register for the Covid-19 vaccine do so by September 30 at the latest.

On August 24, the Provost Committee recommended that students be welcomed back to the halls in the first week of October.

This is not the first time that the university authorities have expressed hope of reopening dormitories. Attempts to reopen on March 13 and May 17 both failed due to spikes in the Covid-19 outbreak.
