Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology has released accommodation prices for the next academic year which has seen some increments students are not pleased with. With a persistent accommodation problem for years now, the University usually relies on private accommodation outside campus. However, the few ones available on campus are charging steep amounts that most students see as a ripe off.
The SRC in a bid to curb this situation secured funds to build a hostel which over the years have served students according to their budget. The 2015/2016 academic year will however, have a different pricing list. Four in a room which usually went for GH 750 would from next semester be given to students at a price of GH 1200. This comes at a time when tuition fees have also been increased.
Brunei and Hall 7 have already released fees and have also been raised for the academic year. This year, four in a room goes for GH 1350 with the 3 in the room going for GH 1,800 and two in a room go for GH 2,350.
