He stated that the project would be under the Build, Operate and Transfer (BOT) agreement. He expressed appreciation to the firm for supporting the university in its drive to address the problem of inadequate hostels as the management plans to have over 75 percent of students resident on campus.

“The university has a student population of about 23, 000. But we have hostel bed spaces less than 3, 000. So, a vast majority of our students are living off-campus or living within the community. Given that most of them are teenagers and young adults, you can imagine some of the challenges we are facing,” the VC disclosed.
