Jaffna Campus to reopen 22 January

[TamilNet, Sunday, 31 December 2006, 13:14 GMT]
Jaffna University board of governors, at a meeting presided by the Acting Vice Chancellor, Prof. Kumaravadivel, decided to reopen the Campus on 22 January, administrators at Jaffna campus said. Sri Lanka Military Command has agreed to arrange sea transportation to the more than 800 out of district students to come back to the campus, officials added.

Following an appeal to Jaffna Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Commander, Major General Chandrasiri, by the Acting VC, the Military has agreed to hire two vessels to transport the student from Trincomalee harbor to KKS, campus officials said.

Meanwhile, campus adminstrators are facing difficulties in arranging accomodation for the 800 out of district students and to more than 200 students from Jaffna Islets and Thenmaradchy areas. Accomodation is currently available for only 400 students. Campus authorities are planning to rent private residences as accomodation for the remaining 600 places, according to sources.

Acting VC also has been co-ordinating with the Jaffna Government Agent to resolve the difficulties related to providing proper meals for the 1000 students expected to live in Campus provided accomodation.

Lectures at Jaffna Campus was held only irregularly after the altercation with campus students and the SLA during the early part of 2006, and the campus was completely closed after clashes broke out between the SLA and the Liberation Tigers on 11 August.
