Student accommodation in Ghana has been a major challenge for almost all stakeholders in the education sector, hence the need to expedite action towards removing this educational bottleneck.
A forum to collate ideas towards securing a lasting solution to this problem is set to take place tomorrow, November 22, 2021, in Kumasi at the great hall of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
The forum also seeks to bring together all public-tertiary education institutions, potential private sector investors, students’ hostel providers, and state and private sector institutions to come up with a workable solution to arrest this challenge.
In an interview with Real Estate Times Africa, Dr. Kwarteng-Ashia, the public relations officer of Ghana tertiary education commission, said a private partnership approach should be adopted to help in addressing the students’ accommodation challenges in the country, adding that the government and the private sector ought to work hand in hand to provide a workable, long-lasting solution to this student accommodation crisis in Ghana.
Through the forum, we hope to collate ideas that will help extend and improve infrastructure facilities to increase access to tertiary education in Ghana.
