NATIONAL Capital District Governor Powes Parkop is pleased with work on a new dormitory at the University of Papua New Guinea that will cater for increasing student numbers.
Parkop said they have funded the building for K17.5 million as a replacement for building the Morata-Gerehu back road that went through the land of UPNG.
And also for the replacement of a male dormitories that burned down in 2012 (Lasetawa block) and 2016 (Talaigu block).
Parkop, who inspected the site yesterday, said the new building would accommodate 150 students.
“This building has a computer laboratory with internet access, a recreational room, and courtyard, ablution blocks – a generally a good environment for the students to live and study in.”
UPNG Vice-Chancellor Professor Frank Griffin has thanked National Capital District Commission for the support and said that this new dormitory was part of UPNG’s plan to increase student intake next year.
“The building is almost completed. It just needs cleaning to be done before it is fully completed. We will decide whether it will be a male or female dormitory. Or will it cater for both genders,” Prof Griffin said.
