 REASON FOR THE INCREASE IN HOSTEL PRICES OUTSIDE UEW CAMPUSES

We did a little research by choosing 20 hostels on each campus. We then sort for the prices of them as part of the research we were doing. According to our research, hostel managers increase their prices due to the tax they pay to the government.

We do not have any option other than to increase the prices since we do pay for other forms of taxes we don’t tell the students. They think we increase the prices because we want more money. No, this is not true. That is not the main reason why we increase hostel prices. We have to be sure that what we do doesn’t affect us negatively since we are also persons of interest, one hostel owner said

WHAT ARE THE SCHOOL AUTHORITIES DOING ABOUT HOSTEL CHALLENGES?

Many students ask this question because they are the victims when it comes to the high payment of hostel fees. Not everyone can afford such high demanding hostel which can lead to quitting school since they can’t come up with the whole amount plus other fees needed to be paid to the school.

There are several projects the former vice-chancellor of the University, Professor Afful Broni began which was geared towards setting up quality and affordable hostel which could solve the problems of accommodation among students. This is one of the biggest projects the university is setting up so far.

The university has assured students to exercise patience as they work towards solving accommodation-related problems.
