Government College Ibadan commenced its first term for the academic session 2023/2024 on September 18th, 2023. However, the boarding students began their journey a day earlier, on Sunday, September 17th, 2023. The boarding houses welcomed both the new and returning students.

The reception for the boarders was conducted in three distinct stages:

1. Confirmation of Payment: Students were required to confirm their payments. This crucial step was overseen by Okeleke Opeyemi (2000), Miss Funmi, and Miss Oluwaseun Bamigbola, the Corps member assigned to the GCIOBA Administrative secretariat. After confirming their payment status, students were provided with their room numbers and assigned to their respective houses.

2. Filling of Hostel Bio-data Form: In the second stage, students were tasked with completing a school Bio-data form. This form gathered essential information about the students, their parents, and their medical history, including height and weight measurements. Ogunniyi Gbolahan (2006), Miss Oyinloluwa Agboola, and Mr. Adeniyi Arole, the Hostel Facility Manager, oversaw this stage.

3. Room Allocation and Luggage Check: The last stage involved checking students into their respective rooms. House Masters including Adeniran Ibrahim (1995), Mr. Ogundokun Kunle, Mr. Lasisi Waliu, Mr. Ajala Temitope, Oduola Tirimisiyu (1980) inspected students' luggage. After the check, students were guided to their assigned rooms. This was supervised by Oyekola Muraina (1991 Sept), the Facilities Manager for GCI and GCIOBA.

Throughout this process, the House Governors appointed by the Government College Ibadan Board of Trustee (GCIBOT) played a vital role in overseeing the smooth execution of the exercise. These esteemed individuals included Ogunrinde, Seye [1965] for Field House; Adegbite, Adeyanju [1967] for Swanston House; Falore, Olaleye [1962] for Carr House and Orowale, Akin [1968] for Powell House. Also present was Oladapo Sonola (1970), the Asset Management Chairman of the association. All the officers present, including the House Governors, gave the students a warm reception.

On the first day, a total of ninety-four students successfully registered for boarding. The enthusiastic boys settled into the boarding houses, enjoyed their dinner and underwent a roll call to ensure that all registered students were accounted for.

By the second day of the exercise, twelve additional students registered into the boarding house.
