Since the start of the #UPResCrisis, UP has condemned the campaign as a publicity stunt, claiming it had CCTV footage showing students had staged photos of sleeping in bathrooms. According to UP, official university residences can only accommodate 15% of the student body and given the limited capacity, preference is given to several factors including, the student must be registered for the academic year, the student must have applied on time, the student must have obtained a grade point average of at least 50%, and the student must be provisionally funded by NSFAS. However, preference is given to first years.
