One of the students boarding one of the four girl's hostels said "why can't they utilize the funds already paid by the students, they are just on a spree to loot us.

Pertinently the university was shut for all the classwork and hostels were closed as well with the onset of covid-19 and Aug 5th decision.

As such students who could not reside in the hostels during the period had earlier demanded for the refund of the hostel fee, to which the authorities had replied that they will have to sort out how much time a student has stayed at the hostel before taking the demand into consideration.

“It was all verbally from the provost and there hasn't been anything worked out on the ground and they are yet to refund our fee,” said another student.

Students have urged the LG Manoj Sinha to intervene into the matter and pass the necessary directions to KU authorities in this regard.
