Dhaka University's residential halls reopened for 1st, 2nd and 3rd year students on Sunday in a festive, peaceful and orderly manner.

The students of the three academic years who had at least one dose of Covid-19 vaccine, moved to their respective halls showing their hall identity card and vaccine card from 8am. The hall authorities were seen to welcome students with flowers, facemasks, hand sanitizers and chocolates. Zafrul Islam, a 2nd year student of Islamic Studies and residential student of Salimullah Muslim Hall said that he felt great after coming back to his hall after 18 months later. 

But he was surprised after seeing no seat allotment for him. 

He said that he made application one month ago while the hall authority sought application for his seat allotment. But still the authority did not allot the seat by his name. 

Now he has to get back to the Gonoroom again. 

Dhaka University Vice-Chancellor Prof Md Akhtaruzzaman then visited Begum Rokeya Hall and Dr Mohammad Shahidullah Hall.

After visiting the halls, Professor Md Akhtaruzzaman expressed satisfaction over the reception procedure of the hall administration in a pleasant atmospheres.

The vice-chancellor urged students to follow proper hygiene rules and regulations to deal with corona virus.

He hoped that all students will be vaccinated in October 16.
