OAU students build hostel

Students of Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU, in collaboration with Campus Alive Initiative Limited, have constructed a hostel facility in the institution—the first by students and for students.

According to the Managing Director of Campus Alive Initiative, Oyinwola Bababtope, “some students en-counter accommodation challenges while on campus and this affects them academically and mentally.

“We deemed it fit to help them and this gave birth to Campus Property, which we formed in 2010,” noting that over 80 percent of higher institutions in the country have accommo-dation challenges.

Oyinwola, however, called on youths not to relent in their efforts, adding that the Initiative, through public private partnership, is currently making plans to take the hostel-building projects  to universities across the country.
