The leadership of the fiery Commonwealth Hall in University of Ghana petitioned the government and the management of the university to solve the school’s growing accommodation crisis.

In their petition, the Junior Common Room (JCR) leadership of the exclusive male hall said “we are members of Commonwealth Hall…and are ready to follow this petition to the latter.”

The students have asked the recipients of their petition to respond within five days, lest they take further action.

Proffering solutions to the crisis, the petition asked the government to build more Halls of residence for students as more than 60% have to deal with their own housing issues.

They also want the management of the university to build more Halls and also green-light the building of annexes by existing Halls of residence.

Meanwhile, reports say the University plans on implementing a ‘freshmen first’ policy at the beginning of next academic year.
