Students from outside Delhi, who are enrolled in the new academic session 2020-21 of university of Delhi, are worried about hostels. students are constantly asking the University of Delhi whether they will be able to get hostel installations after admission. The University of Delhi has not yet decided on a clear policy regarding hostels due to Corona. It is not yet decided whether the colleges will open after admission to Delhi University.
If the DU colleges open after admission for the first year, then the cycle of taking hostels will also put up with a lot of time.
The DTA has conveyed concern over Delhi University not clarifying hostel protocol. The Teachers’ Association has urged the university administration to allocate a circular shortly in this context to the colleges.
