With freshers especially complaining that they’ve become stranded because of their inability to secure any of the traditional halls of residence.
The Public Relations Officer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Vincent Lomotey has acknowledged that indeed the traditional halls are full but added the institution has partnered with private hostel operators in Kumasi to house the remaining students who need accommodation.
He stated, the dean of students inspected some of the private hostels and found them habitable rendering the faculty owners are charging anything in the region of GH¢1000.00 and GH¢1200.00.
Mr. Lomotey further added that traditional halls combined have absorbed about 9000 students.
