GNLU Closes Campus Due to Millipede Infestation, Shifts to Online Classes

The Gujarat National Law University (GNLU) in Gandhinagar has been forced to close its campus due to a severe millipede infestation. The infestation has reached such an extent that the university has granted leave to its students until Sunday, with classes set to resume online from Monday.

GNLU, home to over 1100 students enrolled in its five-year integrated law program and LLM courses, has been severely affected by these pests. Millipedes, commonly seen in soil and on trees during the rainy season, have infested various campus buildings, departments, and hostels. This situation has become intolerable for students, faculty, and staff alike.

Due to the inability to maintain normal academic activities, the university has closed all in-person classes starting today, July 11. The university is normally closed on weekends, but all classes will transition to an online format starting Monday. The university has declared that offline classes will remain suspended indefinitely until the millipede infestation is completely eradicated from the campus and hostel surroundings.

Most out-of-state students have already left for their homes. The university administration is working on resolving the issue as swiftly as possible to ensure the safety and comfort of everyone involved.

This unprecedented situation highlights the importance of pest management in large institutions and the impact environmental factors can have on educational activities.
