IMSU Makes Female Hostel Compulsory for Newly Admitted Female Students
In keeping with one of a kind announcement, and directives made today via the Dean Student Affairs Prof. Nwankwo Uchenna Martins the cause for this compulsion is to put an end to cohabitation among students.
Cohabitation here is an arrangement where two or more people are not married but live together. They often involve a romantic or sexually intimate relationship on a long-term or permanent basis…. More broadly, it implies an emotional and physical intimate relationship which includes a common living place especially between opposite sex and which exists without legal or religious sanction.
This directive aside cohabitation also stems from life-threatening problems that have occurred in times past among students of opposite sex who cohabited. It will also help protect the female child against other off-shoot of cohabitation.
This development is also sequel to the efforts of the management to curtail the incessant challenges her students encounter since the inception of the University which ranges from high rate of increment in off campus hostel rents, insecurity, social vices, lack of adequate water and power supply to poor facilities in various off campus hostels, unwarranted arrest and detention of her students who could be ignorant of a crime committed within their jurisdiction of residence but victims of massive arrest etc.
Therefore, Parents, sponsors or guardians who wish to opt out from the compulsory hostel accommodation are directed to go along with the student to the student affairs directorate to make it official and sign undertaking.
NOTE: This new directive takes immediate effect.
