LASU recaps consequences of indecent dressing on campus


Management of Lagos State University (LASU) has cautioned the newly admitted and returning students of the school, against violating the existing dress code in the university, saying there would be consequences.

The university’s centre for information, press and public relations, in a statement, said it is imperative to remind the students of the rules and regulations of the school so as not to fall victim.

The university, through various media outlets ranging from the school’s bulletin, Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp, revealed that some students are in the habit of violating the rules on what constitutes indecent dressing on campus, hence its resolve to highlight them once again.

The statement read in part, “The students are hereby reminded of what constitutes indecent dressing while on the university campuses, Ojo, Ikeja, Epe and Badagry. You must beware of the consequences of your activities as the full enforcement of the university rule has commenced.

No wearing of transparent mini and skimpy skirts or dresses, and other clothes revealing sensitive parts of the body, wearing tattered dirty jeans with holes, wearing of baggy, saggy, “ass level” and over length trousers, wearing tight fitting apparels that reveal body shape and contours of the body.

“No wearing of T-Shirts and tops with obscene, obnoxious or seductive inscription, no wearing of loose tie, folding, holding and pocketing of ties. Also, no wearing shirt without buttons, or not properly buttoned, rolling of sleeves or flying collar, wearing of face caps or complete covering of face, piercing of body and tattooing, wearing of earrings by male students, wearing of nose ring, very big dropping earrings and necklaces by female students, wearing of distractive knocking shoes like stiletto heels to lecture rooms and the library is frowned at and students may be denied admittance to such places.

“Also, plaiting weaving, bonding of hair by male students, knickers, tight shorts and slacks are allowed only for sports, wearing of slippers is not allowed, wearing of lousy, unkempt, extremely bogus hair or artificial hair.”

All these constitute inappropriate mode of dressing by students, which attract sanctions from the university. So students are enjoined to abide by the rules and regulations so as not to fall a victim of the penalty thereof. The university also warned that any student found violating any of the rules would be made to face the students’ disciplinary committee.
