Concerns over accommodation challenges at NMTC, Korle Bu

Freshers striving to get accomodation at NMTC- Korle Bu

Dear Editor,

 A mounting accommoda­tion crisis at the Nursing and Midwifery Training College (NMTC), Korle Bu, has created a state of confu­sion among students as they commence the new academic year.

‘Freshers’, who were scheduled to report on Mon­day, September 18, found themselves grappling with a significant housing challenge, prompting urgent concerns from the student body.

I had the opportunity to speak with one of the affect­ed students, who shared her harrowing experience. She recounted arriving at the school campus at 1 am, only to find herself without a place to stay.

This unfortunate situation has compelled her and many others to seek accommoda­tion outside campus which would come with its own stress.

What struck me was the admission letter, which clear­ly stated that students would be catered for on ‘First Come, First Serve’ in relation to ac­commodation. This approach does not seem equitable nor conducive to fostering a supportive academic environ­ment for students.

Therefore, I humbly be­seech the school authorities at NMTC, Korle Bu to address this critical issue promptly. One possible solution to this problem of accommoda­tion may be a review of the number of students admitted annually.

The number must align with available housing facil­ities. This adjustment would alleviate the strain on both students and the institution, allowing for a more conducive academic experience.

I plead with the school authorities to consider the ur­gency of this matter and take necessary steps to resolve it promptly. By doing so, they would not only ensure that students have a more seam­less academic journey but also contribute to fostering an environment where excel­lence can flourish.

I respectfully urge the school authorities to take this action, which would greatly improve the accommodation conditions at the institute. I firmly believe that by working together, we can ignite posi­tive change and create better conditions for everyone at NMTC, Korle Bu.
