The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA), Professor Abednego F. O. Amartey, on Monday inspected ongoing construction works on two students’ hostel projects.
The two ten-storey facilities will together provide accommodation for about 3,250 students when completed.
Whilst Hostel B is almost near completion with over 93 per cent of works done so far, Hostel C is about 78 per cent complete.
The cost of the two projects is estimated at over 90 million cedis.
The Vice-Chancellor expressed his satisfaction with the progress of work on the two projects, saying they would go a long way to improve students accommodation on campus.
“We are trying to solve a major problem that has faced this University for some time now, and that is to address the residential needs of our students,” Prof Okoe Amartey says.
“In spite of all the challenges brought about by the pandemic, all the new UPSA infrastructural development projects initiated in 2019 are progressing according to schedule. It is our hope that when these projects are eventually completed, the perennial accommodation problem of our students will be eased.”
The Vice-Chancellor was in the company of the Registrar of the University, Dr Koryoe Anim-Wright as well as Director of Physical Development, Mr Edward Odjidja, Ms Ivy Heward-Mills, deputy director, Public Affairs and some top management members of Access Bank, financier of the two projects.
