With the arrival of New Year, Andhra University is all set to get three new facilities on its campus. A renovated T.L.N Sabha Hall with an attached dining space, an additional J.C Bose Block at the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering in AU College of Engineering with four added classrooms and a new hospital block will add up in the campus this year.
The T.L.N Sabha Hall known for conducting many events in past such as release of thesis ‘Dalita Journalism’, seminar on ‘Global financial system unravelling geo-political dislocations and India‘ and also to hold first session of Andhra State Assembly will have 250 seating capacity, two additional rooms and a dining hall. This hall has been recently reconstructed after the cyclone Hudhud hit the coast.
Reportedly referring to J.C Bose Block of Department of ECE, Vice-Chancellor G Nageswara Rao said: “The new block with four spacious classrooms aims to cater to 450 students. Currently the university has 1,200 ECE students and some of them will soon be shifted to the new premises built at a cost of Rs.1 crore.”
Looking at the need of medical facilities to the students Andhra University is also planning to have a hospital block of its own in the campus. The hospital will be ready with a team of specialists and a resident doctor, a pharmaceutical store, consultancy rooms and an emergency ward by 2018. The foundation stone laying ceremony of the hospital block will be done soon along with the inauguration of renovated T.L.N Sabha Hall and the J.C Bose Block of ECE department.
