Kyambogo University to engage hostel owners on fees hike

KAMPALA- Kyambogo university has made it clear that they will deal with hostel owners that have deviated from what they had agreed and hiked the accommodation fees.

 Mildred Tibananuka the Dean of students Kyambogo University says they will not sit and look at their students being charged unfairly yet everything was agreed upon.

This comes after final year students had started complaining that hostel owners have charged them alot more money compared to what they negotiated with them.

When we visited some hostels, we learnt that there are hostels like Bavana, choice among others which are charging shillings 400,000 to each student for a period of six weeks.

According to Tibananuka, when they met with hostel owners, they agreed that students should be charged not more than shillings 200,000 for only utilities which the hostel owners accepted.

However, Tibananuka told us that it was unfortunate to learn that most hostel owners had deviated from what they had negotiated and agreed on.

She says that they will engage all the hostels that they have learnt that they are over charging students.

Tibananuka urges all the students to remain calm because the matter shall be handled.

Kyambogo University has over 11,943 final year students and the majority of these students stay in private hostels around the University.
