Aligarh: Under pressure from different quarters, the Aligarh Muslim University authorities on Tuesday decided to prepone the reopening of the varsity by three days.

The university will now reopen in a phased manner from May 13 instead of May 16, an AMU release said.

Hostel facilities will now be available to all final year students of different faculties from May 13. The annual examinations will commence from May 18, it added.

In another major decision, the university authorities have also conceded the demand for providing accommodation to all internal students appearing in the engineering entrance test scheduled for May 14.

Halls of residence for pre-final and semester II students will be available from May 21.

The university had been closed indefinitely on April 30 last following a clash between two groups of students.

The AMU Teachers’ Association and the AMU Students’ Union had described the closure as an "over reaction" and had demanded that the university should reopen at the earliest in the overall interest of the students.
