STUDENT representatives of the Labasa USP campus had the opportunity to raise their concerns to the university vice-chancellor Professor Rajesh Chandra at a forum yesterday morning.

Among their concerns were the unavailability of Wifi services and the lack of space at the campus.

In raising the issues, campus student association president Kaushik Chand said the availability of such services would benefit the students.

"Sometimes, the labs are fully-occupied and students don't have anywhere else to do their research," he said.

"A lot of them have their own laptops and if Wifi is available, they can just access the internet from anywhere within the campus premises.

"The students are looking forward to the connection of the Wifi because this allows them easy access to the internet from their laptops.

"We are requesting the campus consider the connection of Wifi."

Mr Chand said there was also not enough space available at the campus to cater for the students.

In response, Prof Chandra said they would have the connection up and running as soon as possible.

He said the USP aimed to provide the best and quality education to its students and would do their best to make this happen.

Prof Chandra also met the campus staff and was updated on the progress of the university's operation in the North.
