Students must show proof that they have received at least one dose of vaccine

Dhaka University is set to reopen its residential halls to students from October 5.

Undergraduate final-year students and Masters’ students will be let into the halls from 8am that day given that they have received at least one dose of the vaccine.

The Provost Standing Committee and Academic Council came up with the decision at a Syndicate meeting with DU VC Professor Aktheruzzaman in the chair on Saturday.

The central library, science library and department seminar rooms will be open to students from September 26 from 10am to 5pm, said Pro Vice Chancellor (Education) ASM Maksud Kamal.

He added that student IDs and proof of at least one dose of vaccine will be strictly monitored by the authorities and only regular residential students will be accommodated in the dormitories.

The authorities have also decided to impose a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) on students after reopening halls.

The SOP includes abiding by health guidelines, wearing masks, and maintaining hygiene and social distancing.

Banners and festoons will also be visible in the residential halls and academic buildings to raise awareness.

According to the decision, the final-year and undergraduate students will have to take their exams and attend classes after halls reopen while first, second and third year students will be allowed into the halls from November.
