PRESS RELEASE: Uniben resumes on Monday, 8th January, 2018: Reviews Students' charges for 2017/2018 Session

The Management of the University of Benin has approved that there would be no increase in the fees/charges paid by all returning students for the 2017/2018 academic session.

The University Management is also reviewing the decision that led to the suspension of the Students’ Union Government of the University of Benin, as all issues pertaining to the students‘ protest in November, 20l7, have been addressed. 

The Governing Council has approved #l.000.00 (one thousand naira) as Students Union dues for all returning students. Consequently, all returning science students are to pay #l5,400.00 (Fifteen thousand four hundred naira only) and non-science students would pay #13,400 (Thirteen thousand four hundred naira only). each~inclusive of SUG dues. 

 The Governing Council also reduced the hostel charges for the undergraduate hostels (Halls l. 2. 3. and 4 for Ugbowo Campus and Ekehuan Campus Hostels) to N17,000.00 (Seventeen thousand naira) for the session. All fees/charges for new students will be reduced by about 50% in their second year in the University, excluding accommodation charges.

All students are to note that hostel accommodation is optional. as allocation is based on “first come. first serve”. 
The University of Benin re-opens on Monday 8th, January 2018 for fresh students and they are expected to pay their acceptance and clearance fees, as applicable to science, non-science, as well as medical and non-medical students. All returning students should note that their resumption date is 21st January, 2018, and lecture starts on 22nd January, 2018 for all students.
The University Management hereby cautions all students be of good behavior. The University would not tolerate any breach of peace in new academic session, as these are laid down rules and regulation for studentship.
