The Malawi University of Business and Applied Sciences (MUBAS) says it is exploring ways that will address the problem of shortage of accommodation for its students.
The university has over 7,000 undergraduate students but it has accommodation which is enough for 900 students only and the rest operates from rented houses within Blantyre.
Speaking during a parents orientation meeting at Comesa Hall in Blantyre as the school received the new cohort of first-year students, Vice Chancellor for MUBAS, Nancy Chitera, said talks are at an advanced stage with some organisations that have shown interest to come and build hostels at the campus.
As an immediate solution, MUBAS is targeting the construction of hostels that will accommodate 10,000 students while for the long-term solution, it plans to construct hotels with the capacity to accommodate 30,000 students.
