World Class Hotel at Mangalore University: Karnataka
- | wednesday | July 14, 2021
The University of Mangalore will now have a world-class hotel for international students.
Karnataka’s Mangalore University, which has a significant number of international students, will have a separate, world-class hostel being built on the university campus. The project is expected to be completed by September 2021.
140 students from 29 countries including Afghanistan, China, Indonesia, Iran, South Africa and Nepal studied at the University of Mangalore. For the next academic year, 220 foreign students have applied for admission.
Until now, these students did not have a well-equipped separate home. Therefore, they are currently staying in rented buildings in Derlakatte. In order to address their problem, the hostel, equipped with international facilities, is being built on the premises of the university.
Work on this project had started five years ago, but the university was awaiting approval and had used its own money as construction had started by then. The ministry has now approved the project. The rest of the hostel blocks were intended to be used for the accommodation review block and the VVIP guesthouse. Some departments of the University should be moved to another block.
The vice-chancellor of the university said the building of the international class hostel for foreign students was in the final stages and that due to the lockdown work had been delayed.
