Rajshahi University of Engineering and Technology (RUET) reopened its dormitories on Thursday with a condition of maintaining health rules amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The dormitories were reopened for the convenience of the students after around one and half years of unexpected closure caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Prior to this, necessary preparations, including ensuring of conservancy, health instruments and isolation centre at medical, were completed, reports Bangladesh Sangbad Sangstha.

Students Adviser Prof Rabiul Awal told BSS that the students have started entering into their respective dormitory from 8:am Thursday through submitting photocopies of their identity cards, coronavirus certificate or registration card.

The RUET made the decision in a meeting of its syndicate, highest policy making body of the technological university, held early this month with Vice-chancellor Prof Rafiqul Islam Sheikh in the chair.

“We have reopened the dormitories for the greater interest of the students,” said Prof Islam, adding that many of the departments are taking examinations in-persons at present.

So, reopening of the dormitories had become crucial as the students were suffering a lot due to accommodation crises.

After completion of the ongoing examination another syndicate meeting will be held to take decision of reopening of the classes in-persons in due time, Prof Islam added.
