Exco Recruitment Drive

No Polystyrene Food Container Will Be Provided

To all UTP students,

Form now onwards, no polystyrene food container will be provided at all cafeterias due to enhancing our Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) in UTP. Due to this, the cafeteria only provide paper food container which is biodegradable and environmental friendly. Anyway, the cafeterias have their right to sell the paper food container towards students. Therefore, you are suggested to use your own food container to carry away your own food.

UTP Campus Closed For a Week

Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS’s campus was closed from 31st July - 6th August 2009 due to the increasing number of Influenza Like Illness (ILI) among its’ students. During that period, all students were required to leave campus as disinfection works were to be done all over campus, including the hostels.
Thus, UTP students had to return at least one room key, including their padlock keys to their respective Residential Village offices. This is so the workers can gain access into their rooms and wardrobes to disinfect it. Failure to do so result in disciplinary action against students and their padlocks were forced open.

Fortunately, many students complied with the rules set by the management, and their checkout was handled smoothly by Village Supervisors with the help of Residential College Support Unit (RCSU). RCSU members also assisted the management by following the workers to each room during disinfection works to ensure that nothing untoward happen to the students’ belongings. However, the management and RCSU are not responsible for any stolen belongings.

Upon returning, students have to first undergo H1N1 screening before they are permitted to enter the campus. The screening was conducted at Main Hall during office hours and at the main gate for those who arrived after office hours. Students who are declared healthy (body temperature below 37.5°C) are given a ‘Health Screening Card’ which is orange in colour. Students had to present this card at the Residential Village office to obtain their room key. This card must also be carried at all times and students are not permitted to enter the campus without it.

All these strict rules have been imposed by UTP management as a necessary precaution to control H1N1 outbreak among the students. Before the campus was closed, there were already 3 confirmed cases in UTP. We hope that all students realise the gravity of this pandemic and will thus pay more attention to their personal hygiene as a preventive measure.

RCSU Solves Celcom Network Coverage in UTP

The year 2009 has brought with it such a wonderful gift to all UTP students. The phone network coverage for all CELCOM users has been improved drastically. Majority of UTP students are using three types of phone network service provider which are DiGi, CELCOM, as well as MAXIS. However, many students faced problems with the network coverage on campus. This is due to the poor phone coverage in the residential villages, especially at Village 3, Village 4 and Village 5. Most of the residents in those villages do not receive a clear phone coverage that enables them to make phone calls or send a single message. This problem has led to many problematic miscommunications. Some students were forced to go outside of their block just to make a phone call. Therefore, to overcome this problem, Welfare department of Residential College Support Unit of Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTPRCSU) has taken some actions. They are:-

· Petition
Petitions have been distributed among a number of UTP students in order to identify the places on campus that were facing this problem. The petitions were also handed out to get the approval and support from the students of UTP for any further actions taken by UTPRCSU.

· Survey
Surveys were also conducted by our department to the students who were staying at the different villages, as well as to the staff of UTP.

· Negotiation with network service provider.
Based on the analysis from the survey and the petition conducted, we have decided to deal directly with the network service provider at the nearest branch from UTP. The negotiation took a few months to go through all the process.
The following is a summary of our negotiation:
Our complaint was responded by CELCOM Malaysia Berhad. They identified the main reason why UTP received poor network coverage which was the coverage from the CELCOM site towards UTP main entrance was being blocked by UTP peak area (Water Tank Area). Then the Field Operation Department of CELCOM Malaysia Berhad, led by Mr Shafia Harikan has taken some actions in order to overcome this problem. CELCOM Malaysia Berhad has agreed to place one receiver tower near UTP to improve the reception of the coverage. The receiver tower has been placed outside of the campus and it is located near the water tank area.

We (UTPRCSU) are having a further discussion with CELCOM Malaysia Berhad on how to make all the network service providers such as DiGi and MAXIS become better. Based on the explanation given by CELCOM’s representative, we have been told that any joint venture with other network service providers can only be implemented after six months, starting from the day CELCOM Malaysia Berhad placed the receiver tower nearby UTP. We are looking forward to make other network coverage better for the benefit of all UTP students.

RCSU Recorrects The Qiblat Direction

On 14th February 2009, Residential College Support Unit (RCSU) with the assistance from Rakan Masjid Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS has successfully organised “Gerak Gempur Qiblat” in Village 5.
“Gerak Gempur Qiblat” was initiated after RCSU received a complaint from a concerned student that the qiblat direction in Village 5 is incorrect, particularly the female’s block. After consulting the Imam of Masjid An-Nur and doing some research, we have found that the qiblat direction in V5 female block is indeed incorrect.
Therefore, we have pasted the correct qiblat direction on the pantry ceiling of each house. We have also informed the residents of this qiblat correction. Soon, “Gerak Gempur Qiblat” will also be conducted in other villages.
For those who would like further clarification, you may visit http://www.qiblalocator.com/ or email your concerns to utprcsu@gmail.com. The full report of this matter is already being posted to http://utpress.blogspot.com/ .We hope that all residents are informed on this matter and there is no more doubt on your qiblat direction. The most important thing is for you to be confident in your qiblat direction. Hence, we trust that there will be no more misunderstanding regarding this matter.
