“The University of Benin Senate has amended the Institution’s 2020/2021 academic calendar and approved Sunday 23rd October, 2022, for students to return to halls of residence,” read a statement released on Wednesday by the institution’s spokesperson, Dr. Benedicta Ehanire.

The second of December marks the beginning of online registration for new students accepted for the academic years 2021 and 2022.
