Fourah Bay College, founded as far back as 1827, is the oldest university in West Africa and the first western-style university in the region. For years now, students have been yearning for hostels which have not been in operation due to rehabilitation works. The situation has since then left many students arriving on campus late for academic work. Others coming from provinces across the country find it very difficult to get residences in order to ease their lives. Fast forward to 2019, the prayers of students at Fourah Bay College are close to being answered as the hostel facilities are almost at their completion stage. With the rehabilitation of the hostels, many students who couldn’t find fixed settlements in the urban area, will find it easy to make it for classes and will reduce the cost used by many students on transportation. However, some students have called on the college administration to make ways for disabled students to have easy access to the buildings.
