Parents worry over Unisel students’ safety

Parents of Universiti Selangor's (Unisel) new students have expressed worry over the safety of their children after students were asked to seek accommodation outside the Berjuntai Bestari campus here.

“I hope Unisel can ensure our children's safety, especially those from far away and not used to the area, particularly girls,” said Mat Nawi Ab Rahman, 45, from Kota Baru.

Another parent, Amran Che Ibrahim, 51, said most students do not own their vehicles and hope the university would provide regular transport services for them.

Some 3,000 Universiti Selangor (Unisel) students had been forced to vacate the 44 block hostels in Bestari Jaya after these were ordered closed by the Public Works Department and the Auditor-General's Chambers.

Meanwhile, Unisel corporate communication director Rosniza Mohamad Rasol said new students would be housed in 100 two-storey houses owned by Unisel in Kota Puteri here.

“We've also provided security guards for every block.

There will also be supervising wardens made up of the university's staff and lecturers,” she said, adding that a daily bus service would be provided.

Last Wednesday, vice chancellor Prof Dr Anuar Ahmad said the repairs were expected to take a year with an estimated cost between RM40mil and RM60mil.
