Panjab University campus is likely to open for all students in the coming month post Diwali, claimed sources.

As of now, the authorities have opened the campus (offline classes) for a handful of students. “Yes, the authorities will open the campus fully for offline classes and examinations. Many departments have already been opened for offline classes and it was like a trial run. The only problem is to allot accommodation to hostellers. And for that, the authorities are talking to the UT Administration to issue a circular. The Adviser to the Administrator has already said ‘yes’ to opening hostels for those who have got both doses of vaccine, and soon the authorities will adopt it,” said a source.

Earlier, the campus was opened for students in three phases. It has been completely shut for offline classes since the breakdown of covid pandemic. However, since the dip in cases, the students have been demanding the opening of the campus and hostels for all students.

Meanwhile, the authorities stated that the practical examinations (odd semester) for undergraduate classes scheduled to be conducted from December 17 to 21, and for postgraduate classes from December 21 to 24, will be held offline. “With almost everything opened across the nation, there has been a huge demand to open the campus. And it is expected that the authorities will take a final call soon,” said a senior official.
