Queries about the two hostels that the Gozo Diocese is opening for Gozitan students in Malta, were discussed during a meeting between Gozo Bishop Mgr Mario Grech and a delegation from the Gozo University Group
It was noted that the rent for the months of October to June will be €100 a month for each person. However, the cost of water, electricity, internet, gas and cleaning services are not covered in the €100 rent, and is to be shared between the students.
Mgr Mario Grech explained that while the hostel in Gzira for girls is finished, the one in for boys in Gwardamanga is expected to be finished soon.
The Gzira hostel has 7 individual bedrooms with 3 shared bathrooms, while the one in Gwardamanga will have 6 double bedrooms and 2 individual bedrooms, each room with its own bathroom. Every room is also equipped with a desk for studying, the Bishop said.
Both hostels will each have a shared kitchen and a washing-machine. Mgr Grech added that a cleaner will be employed to clean the common areas, while the managing persons are to inspect the hostels every two weeks to check if everything is in order.The residents will also be able to contact these persons in case of emergencies.
Every Gozitan student is eligible to apply for a place at the hostels, but preference will be given to those who are in need.
The Board will be made up of the Diocese Administrative Secretary Mr Victor Gusman, Lecturer Dr Joe Azzopardi, Mr Richard Matrenza, and a member of the GUG organisation. The applications can be found online to download by clicking here. or collect a hard copy from the Curia’s reception.
