This concerns the email that was sent to UKZN students yesterday which was addressing about the return of cohort of students to the university, which excluded second and third year students whereas these students have been to the University during this pandemic. These students did follow the obligations and complied by them, and they much aware of how things operate during this period. Learning while staying at home was never easy and still isn't as it poses lot of threats to students.

This is caused by poor network coverages at some areas as students do not live on the same area where the network is likely to work better, and the data provided by the varsity isn't sufficient enough as everything online demands excess data and therefore students need access to unlimited WIFI from their residences. Also the amount people in households which results to excessive noise hence it's not conducive to study. Some students do not even get enough time to study due to the overloads of chores they have to attend at their homes which ends up clashing with their classes.

With all these concerns raised by many students, we are pleading with UKZN to please reconsider their decision and allow second and third year students to return to their residences so that all students are all offered the same opportunities and have a better chance at tackling the struggles of online learning. Looking forward to a good response that will be beneficial to all students.

Regards
Some concerned UKZN students.
