UPDATE ON THE GLO CUSTOM DATA PLAN FOR UNILORIN STUDENTS
In line with the mandate of keeping smooth academic activities even as the University goes virtual, we wish to bring to the attention of all students that the following arrangements are in place to ease the transition to the new normal.
The university hotspots have been increased with additional 39 new spots and bandwidth strengthened. Also, a centre with 200 computers under the watch of COMSIT is to begin operations to assist students of all categories who, for one reason or the other, may not be online at the time of the lecture to download from the repository within 48 -72hrs of the lecture.
On the other hand, since Universities are to thread cautiously on crowd management, the opening of hostels will be delayed till 18th of January, 2021 when physical activities are expected to commence on campus as announced by FGN. The implications is that pending when students are eventually allowed to resume on campus, virtual learning and teaching will continue and students may be in need of data.
Consequently, arrangement has been made between Student Union and Globacom network under the watch of Student Affairs to privately assist students in getting personal data within the first week of virtual classes pending resumption on campus at discounted rate:
The rates are as follows:
0- 10GB @ #263.33 per GB
11- 20GB @ #250 per GB
21- 30GB @ #230 per GB
31- above @ #200 per GB
Students who are interested (optional) should fill the google form via this link. The offer is only for Glo users.
Payment will be to a dedicated account and centrally processed and will be communicated to the interested students.
We remain committed to protect the interests of students of the University of Ilorin and we shall continue to look for ways to help them adapt to the new system of learning.
