Accommodation was not easily resolved, the university said. “The university’s on-campus residences are full to capacity. Accredited off-campus accommodation is meant for funded or self-paying students, as the university does not own the residences and thus cannot enforce its internal concessions on service providers.
“About 120 students who were without accommodation for various reasons were granted access to on-campus residences. There are a number of students who remain unfunded after their appeals were unsuccessful for various reasons, such as poor academic performance.”
In total, NMU said 28,650 students have been registered, which is up 4% on last year.
