As per the decision, students will have to show the Covid vaccine certificates of at least one dose and the valid student identification cards at the hall entrance.
This will also be required to study at the university's central library and the seminar libraries from 26 September from 10:00am to 5:00pm.
The syndicate has taken these steps to beef up the surveillance to ensure certification of at least one dose of Covid-19 vaccine and the valid identity card, preventing non-students from entering halls, told pro-VC professor (education) AKM Maksud Kamal to Prothom Alo.
