On Monday, 6th July 2020, Bright Emmanuel Ampofo, an SRC Presidential Aspirant and former Deputy Speaker of the SRC Parliament, submitted a petition to the Dean of Students to intervene and negotiate for a reduction of hostel fees on behalf of students.
He asked the office of the Dean of Students to pay particular attention to the exorbitant fees foreign students have to pay to get accommodation off-campus and help curb the issue.
He finally proposed that the Office of the Dean of Students should extend technical assistance to the hostels off-campus to come up with an effective online platform to aid students apply for accommodation online. This will put students at decreased risk of contacting the virus.
Below is a copy of the petition.
