The Dhaka University (DU) authorities allowed the residential students of its honors first, second, and the third year in its dormitories from Monday morning after 18 months of closure.

The students who received at least one dose of Covid-19 vaccines allowed their respective halls from 8am this morning maintaining social distance and following health guidelines.

On October 5, the university opened the residential halls for its honours fourth year and master's students who received at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine.

After vaccinating all the students of the university, in-person classes will be resumed from October 17, after a long closure of one and half year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Earlier on September 28, the Provost Standing Committee and the Academic Council made the decision to reopen dorms at a syndicate meeting chaired by the vice-chancellor.

The dorms had remained close since March 20 last year following the outbreak of Covid-19 in Bangladesh which prompted the government to shut down education institutes across the country.
