Rajshahi University of Engineering and Technology has been closed till March 29 following the death of an activist of Bangladesh Chhatra League.
The Ruet authorities have asked the male and female students to vacate their dormitories by 5:00pm on Friday and 12:00pm on Saturday respectively.

The university took the closure decision in an urgent meeting held hours after BCL leader Aziz Khan Sajib, 25, succumbed to his injures early Friday, reports our RU correspondent.
A 4th year civil engineering student at the university and son of Ataur Rahman of Palashbari at Savar, Aziz died at 3:00am at Savar’s Habib Clinic.
Sajib, an organising secretary of the university's Zia hall unit BCL, was severely beaten up by the supporters of a rival faction on March 12 over a previous feud centring a tour of the electrical engineering department.
Sources said the university's Selim Hall unit BCL President Munna, along with Joint Secretary Sultan Rajibul Alam, activists Palash and Jayan and 10-12 others struck Aziz Khan Sajib repeatedly with iron rods, sticks and hammers at the university cafeteria on Monday.
Sajib was first admitted to Rajshahi Medical College and Hospital (RMCH) with critical injuries on his head and chest.
On March 13, Sajib was referred to Dhaka Orthopedic Hospital (Pangu) and shifted to Habib Clinic near his village home on Thursday in an unconscious state.
The authorities also formed a three-member probe committee headed by Electronic Department Head Prof Abdul Gaffar to investigate the reason behind Sajib’s death.
Earlier on Wednesday, Aziz Khan Sajib filed a case with Motihar Police Station accusing 20 BCL men with 14 names including Palash, Sultan Rajibul Alam, Tanvir Ahmed, Zahangir Alam, Tanvir Alam, Rajuan Ahmed, Rasel, Jayan, Sufian, Anamul, Dipta, Munna and Shamim for assaulting him
