The future of dormitaries is also in question in Singapore, with the government set to move a motion of no confidence against the university’s management.
The motion, proposed by Education Minister Heng Swee Ping, said the government should review the institution’s operations, improve facilities and increase the number of students enrolled.
Lampsarasi students and staff are still enrolled in the dormitary’s academic units.
But the university, which has about 4,000 students, has been criticised by some of its students for the overcrowding of its campus and for the lack of proper dormitory facilities, particularly for the children.
In response to the motion, Mr Heng wrote on his Facebook page: The government must ensure that students have adequate housing, education, recreational facilities and food, and that it can guarantee students access to their studies and opportunities to participate in their studies.
We must also ensure that the university has a solid infrastructure that will provide adequate and safe facilities for students to study.
The university also needs to consider how to maintain its operations as the new government takes office, including how to expand the academic facilities.
Earlier this year, the university announced plans to expand dormities to the extent of 5,000 beds and create a new dormitory at the university campus in Changi to accommodate a further 2,000 undergraduates.
Students are already occupying dormitarias and classrooms at the new Changi campus, which will include the existing facilities for the student body and the general public.
Under Singapore law, a campus is a building that houses at least one school and that is used for student studies.
Lamparas, which are owned by a group of developers, are also in the sights of the government after a series of construction projects to convert the land into office and retail space.
