BSUM Shuts Down Hostels as 2nd Semester Exam Commences – 2016/2017.
Following the Suspension of the Second Semester Examinations of the 2016/2017 Academic Session on Friday, 16th February, 2018 owing to students’ protest in the University over non-registration by some students.
The closure became necessary to forestall the breakdown of law and order on the campus.
The 273rd (Emergency) meeting of the Senate held on Monday, 19th February, 2018 considered and ratified the closure of the University by the Vice-Chancellor and approved among others that:
i. a 2-week window be allowed to enable students who were yet to complete their registration in the University to do so;
ii. the Second Semester examinations time table be reworked to enable students complete their examinations;
iii. the examinations be resumed on Monday, 5th March, 2018;

4) Students are to note that in addition to the strike action by staff which has forestalled the use of the hostels, Management has taken a proactive action to complete the renovation work in the hostels earlier commenced during the last students’ break to ensure improved facilities and sanitary condition of the hostels preparatory for the commencement of 2017/2018 academic session, scheduled to commence after the second semester examinations.
5) The import of this memo is to inform all students, in addition to the announcement on radio and social media platforms to make adequate preparation to complete their Second Semester examinations as rescheduled.
6) While Management of the Benue State University regrets the inconveniences these developments might cause our esteemed students, please be assured of our commitment to complete the 2016/2017 Academic Session that has suffered undue protraction.
Thank you.
Mrs. Catherine Terlumun Bur
Acting Registrar
