Last year students demonstrated for the reversal of University hall, which had been made mixed hall, to its original all mall status.

Responding to the simmering tensions, which led to the arrest of two old students, the  Registrar of the University, Kwasi Boateng in a public statement called for calm.

Mr. Boateng said the management is not oblivious of concerns raised as a result of the conversion but added the university was studying a committee report on the development.

He promised to implement the findings of the committee soon as that is done.

Addressing the Council Chairman, government through the Education Minister said in a letter copied to the media, that University Hall must remain an all-male hall.

“I… wish to reiterate the position of the government on this matter that (Katanga) University Hall remain a male hall of residence as prevailing in other sister universities e.g Commonwealth Hall in UG, Casely-Hayford Hall in UCC, Union, Ecowas and Savannah Halls in UDS,” the statement said in part.

According to the government, it took the decision “to preserve a peaceful and conducive environment for academic work and cordial relationship in the University.”
