The Adviser to UT Administrator has directed the UT Education Department to issue orders for allowing double occupancy in Panjab University hostels.

During his visit to the campus today, Adviser Dharam Pal interacted with students and officials. He also visited various departments and said the orders of allowing two students in one hostel room would be issued soon. “The Education Department has been directed to issues orders for allowing sharing of hostel rooms on the double occupancy pattern. However, both residents should be fully vaccinated. Orders in this regard will be issued soon,” said Pal.

He visited the Sector 25-based campus. Panjab University has already opened the campus for offline classes in a phased manner. However, the authorities have allowed only one hosteler to reside in one room considering the Covid pandemic.
