COLOMBO: The Rajarata University will not be reopened until the students vacate the University premises, University sources said.

The students say they don’t vacate the administrative building until their demands are addressed by the adminstration.

The university premises has been declared out of bounds after the students forcefully entered into the administrative building. Following this, the students last Friday surrounded the administrative building and forcefully held Vice Chancellor Prof. K. A. Nandasena hostage for over four hours.

The students say, they have to undergo severe hardships as a result of the insufficient hostel facilities.

There are over 2,000 students at the university but only 370 were provided with hostel facilities. Students demand that the police barracks inside the university premises should be converted into student hostels.
