Management of the University of Ghana, Legon, on Tuesday morning, opened the residential application portal for its first year students.
The portal was opened at 9:00am, and all level 100 students began the race for accommodation.
When the portal was closed, some individuals took to social media to lament the inadequate time given by the authorities.
According to some users on Twitter, the University’s site got jammed immediately after the portal was opened.
It is unknown the number of freshers who were successful and those who failed to obtain residence.
Below are some concerns shared by some of the students.

9:02 am all rooms occupied
Those who lamented were, however, urged to be calm and search for alternatives as such a challenge has been experienced by many who were admitted to the school.
“Dear Legon Freshmen who could not secure accommodation. Do not sulk, and cry. It is not the end of the world. Start looking for alternatives. Embrace yourselves for the journey ahead. It’s going to be a tough one. Take it from someone who has been a non-resident for three years,” a user commented.
