Uni plans expansion

Shayal Devi
Thursday, March 06, 2014

WITH the registration of 1270 students at the USP's Lautoka campus this semester, accommodation is an issue.

Campus director Dr Pramila Devi said during the first week, a couple of pre-degree courses had a very large number of students who couldn't fit into the audio and video conferencing room.

"That has been sorted by moving the conferencing session into the lecture hall," Dr Devi said.

"The renovation of the Lautoka campus was done last year when we extended by adding another floor to increase the learning and teaching space at campus. This is already in use."

Dr Devi said because of the space factor, the university acquired an additional floor at the Lautoka campus and was now in the process of establishing centres in Sigatoka and Rakiraki.

"The university is building a campus on land along Tavewa Avenue, Lautoka. The physical work on this should be starting soon."

Dr Devi said the academic year had started positively, with an increase in student registration and the number of courses, including the number of face to face mode courses.

She also said they were looking into acquiring more space and extending opening hours for the campus.
