 THE PNG University of Technology in Lae, Morobe, has built a two-storey dormitory for its male students.

Construction company Niugini Builders took almost three years to complete the K10.1 million building. It has 58 rooms that could accommodate 116 students.

It has six ablution blocks – three on the ground floor and three upstairs, – a laundry area on each side of the wing and five laundry lines at the end of the building.

Each floor of the building has a kitchen, storage, dining and computer rooms. A self-contained room for the sub-warden is on ground floor.

Acting Vice-Chancellor Prof John Pumwa thanked the former administration for the initiative to establish the project in 2011.

Pumwa urged students to look after the building which aimed to cater for the increase in students.

He warned that any student caught destroying school properties would be expelled.

Dorcas Horis from the school’s treasury department urged the students to look after the building.

Director Student Services Ian Leklek said occupants of the new dormitory had been allocated rooms according to their academic performances.

Rooms were allocated to the top students in second and third year from each of the 13 academic departments.
