Kwame Yeboah, the Public Relation Officer of KNUST, said the rationale for the conversion is to make room for more female students.

He said the university’s new vice chancellor has a policy to increase female enrollments especially in the area of science and technology.

“We have to find places for them (female students to sleep)” he told TV3 Mid-day news on Sunday.

According to him, the policy will start in the next academic year.

He also dismissed suggestions that there was no wide consultation on the policy.
