According to OAUPEEPS, following the activation of the request for accommodation for the Freshmen of the Obafemi Awolowo University, on Wednesday, 27th April 2016, many of the fresh students have not been able to secure accommodation on campus.
It was discovered that the portal started to bring the error message that "the Bedspace allotted to your faculty has been exhausted" in about
24 hours after its activation. This was mostly first experienced by the female fresh students and later by the male.
Ife, a female fresher in the College of Health Sciences lamented about the development saying "I don't know what to do now, I have been trying to get bedspace since last Thursday without any success and my Dad really wants me to live on campus".
Another female student, Grace also expressed disappointment at the inability of the relevant body to provide her with accommodation even after paying the required tuition fees.
However, it should be recalled that a similar incident occurred last year even though the portal was later reactivated for Bedspace request.
