The University of Zambia (UNZA) has made an upward adjustment for accommodation and examinations fees among others.

Public Relations Manager Damaseke Chibale says the decision to adjust the fees was arrived at after a systematic and careful analysis of the cost structure associated with the services rendered to students.

Mr. Chibale indicated in statement made available to ZANIS that Management has increased the hostel fees from K1, 200 to K3, 900 per student which translates into an increment from K100 per month to K325 per month.

He added that internet fees have been increased from K 55 to K 194 per year for full time students and from K 27 to K95 per annum for distant students.

And for Sports and Recreation, Mr. Chibale indicated that students will now be paying K150 per year instead of K65 whereas examination fees have been increased from K100 per year to K50 per course.

    • no why riots when the fees are within reach of many students but as for sports fee let the fee put to good use by building new infrastructure at sports complex of OYDC status come on unza u can do much better than what we see there as sports arena

  1. How come in Zambia do we not give a written notice of intention to increase fees !!! How can people just come up with the money – they have not budgeted for this increase. Once again the poor and vulnerable students will be left with no means to educate themselves further ! Instead of investing in education they are squandering money ( aka fire tenders!)

  2. In Zambia if you are poor nifyofine mpaka umuyaya for the generation to come. Where can a poor man get money to take his child to UNZA. Everything is for the well to do. They have the money, the get bursaries because of the connections, job are there after graduation. Its really rough to have no money pa Zed. The government should do something these high fees are just depriving students coming from poor families. The current vice chancellor the worst in history.

  7. Government waste is the reason for such increases. Imagine what a trip to Congo brazaville costs and what it yields. And if whatever that cost, was directed to ministry of higher education. We really have the wrong priorities in this country. Developed and developing countries try to educate as many youth as possible by keeping education affordable. Imagine if education was as expensive during the kaunda era, many of todays Zambian politicians and leaders would not have the chances or opportunities that they have today to be in leadership.

  8. For all the years I spent at UNZA under government sponsorship, no body has bothered to even subtract a Ngwee from my monthly income. Why? And can you develop like this?. The form we used to sign from Bursary indicated student loan and not bursary. I left UNZA 20 years ago.
    Imagine if government is getting even a K50 per month from all of us who enjoyed their sponsorship, would there be financial problems at UNZA? No.

  11. It happened to me when I entered 3rd Year at RIDGEWAYDIRECT ENTRY FROM MAIN CAMPUS.
    Although being intelligent and coming from poor family BURSARY REFUSED TO UPGRADE MY
    SPONSORSHIP. That shuttered my childhood vision of being a medical DOCTOR and help the needy.
    I dislike and hate BURSARY MANAGEMENT.DONORS should just start to facilitate funds and carry survey
    on their own rather than sitting on vulnerable people opportunities.THATS why ZAMBIA has a lot of burdens.
    it happened to me 2012.

    GUYS LETS NOT FEAR MAN BUT GOD
