Hostel crisis at University of Nairobi
22 May 2013, 09:54
Nairobi - Thousands of freshmen admitted under the double intake programme at the University of Nairobi have been left without accommodation on campus.
Business Daily reports that about half of the 4,832 students, who reported to the college on Monday, on Tuesday jammed the institution’s Student Welfare Authority offices pleading for rooms in the hostels.
Following a government directive to delink university admissions from bed capacity, there is a heavy strain on facilities such as lecture halls and accommodation, whilst many of the students do not have money to pay for private hostels.
