DU Pro Vice Chancellor (Academic) Prof ASM Maksud Kamal, who is also a syndicate member of the university, confirmed the latest development to The Daily Star.
"First, masters and honours final year students will be allowed into halls. Once their exams are over, they will leave the halls. Later, students of other sessions will be allowed into halls gradually," he said.
The syndicate also finalised the suggestion of provost committee -- to reopen the central library of the university on September 26, he said.
Students, who have received Covid-19 vaccine, can use the library, said the professor.
