The VCs also discussed holding a uniform admission test for all universities

The Association of Universities of Bangladesh (AUB) has announced that residential hall dormitories will reopen on May 17 and classes will resume on May 23, in line with the government’s previous decision.

The decision came at a virtual meeting of the AUB, the organization of vice-chancellors of the public universities, on Wednesday.

AUB President and Chittagong University of Engineering and Technology (CUET) Vice-Chancellor (VC) Prof Md Rafiqul Alam chaired the meeting.

"Since the government hasn’t announced any change in its previous decision, we’re preparing to open the halls and campuses in due time," he told Dhaka Tribune.

Education Minister Dipu Moni had earlier said that teachers, residential teachers, students and officials would be vaccinated before the dormitories of the public universities were reopened.

The VCs also discussed holding a uniform admission test for all universities.

However, the AUB president said that admission tests would be delayed because of the need to prepare question papers and print them. “It may not be possible to complete the process by June 19. So we will take a decision after Eid.”
