According to the acting SRC president Naada Antwi, she and her team instructed them to go to places around like Okponglo, shiashie, Bawuleshie, Mariana, UPSA and look for hostels that are close and also negotiate with owners to reduce prices to accommodate students for the meantime while they try solve the accommodation crises on campus but despite negotiation with the owners,  the prices were still at a very high-end for them to afford.

“This is something that is beyond the SRC and we cannot do much about it. We are therefore calling on the government to interven and facilitate the building of the SRC hostels to bring to an end this persistent accommodation crisis”, she appealed.
