CAIRO: Al-Azhar University deputy President Ahmed Hosni denied reports about the closure of the student dormitory when the second term starts on March 15.

Speaking to MENA, Hosni said the university will begin procedures to accommodate students at the dormitory within two weeks from the start of the second term under rules set to serve serious and committed students away from rioters and troublemakers.

The postponement of the second term, which happened more than once, was due to the university’s keenness to complete the renovation of some of its faculties, which were damaged during riots by Muslim Brotherhood affiliated students, he said.

The restoration works have cost 10 million EGP (U.S. $1.43 million), he added.
