The Catholic University College of Ghana’s contractor handed over the two (2) Cluster Hostel to Prof. James Hawkins Ephraim on behalf of the University. The Hostel Facilities are ready for occupancy for the 2013/2014 academic year.
The hostels come to add to infrastructural development that the University has seen over the past years since it moved to its permanent campus in 2008. Each cluster building contains 116 rooms. The two hostels can accommodate 928 students.
The hostels consist of:
Two single bunked bed with mattresses
Storage and study area
A ceiling fan
Wifi internet connectivity
TV lounge Area
Spacious common Kitchen
A laundry Area with drying lines
24 hour reception and security service
An infirmary for students and a host of other facilities.
This multi-purpose edifice forms part of the University's vision of providing academic excellence for its students in a conducive environment. This comes at an appropriate time with the steady growth in the number of students and the need for standard accommodation in a conducive environment for studies.
The structures were blessed by the University Chaplain, Rev. Fr. Dr. Peter Yaw Oppong-Kumi. The chaplaincy organizes Holy Mass during the week and on Sundays for students who live on campus.
The project was financed by the University through a loan secured by a consortium of banks in Ghana. The University is grateful to its financiers for their assistance.
The Students’ Representative Council (SRC) is also constructing a sports complex which seeks to make it more exciting living on the campus.
The hostels would be managed by a hostel management committee under the supervision of the Dean of Students’ Affairs, Rev. Fr. Dr. James Ackah.
