The Osmania University administration has decided to construct another 500-bed hostel on campus due to a large number of students, particularly women, enrolling in various courses offered by the university’s campus colleges.
A 500-bed hostel for girls was opened by the university administration in February last year. There are reading rooms, a spacious dining room, and a state-of-the-art kitchen at the hostel. OU Vice Chancellor Prof. D Ravinder was quoted as saying on Thursday that the 500-bed hostel would be equipped with modern amenities such as a kitchen, dining area, and dormitories.
In addition to the new hostel, the university plans to transfer Nizam College and University College of Science, Saifabad students to their respective college hostels from campus hostels.
Aside from reducing the university’s burden, this move will accommodate a larger number of OU students on campus. This will also make it easier for students to travel to their colleges from the OU campus hostels.
As each course has a different almanac, the university plans to admit students from one faculty to one hostel next year. The OU campus currently has 24 hostels with a total capacity of 8,500 students.
Aside from that, a new administrative building will be constructed on the campus opposite the IICT entrance. Because the administration is planning a closed campus, this location has been chosen by authorities to allow outsiders access to the OU administration. A centennial pylon will also be built near the Arts College.
The university administration, led by Vice-Chancellor Prof D Ravinder, has developed 21 detailed project proposals aimed at restoring Osmania University’s past glory and positioning it alongside world-class universities.
The proposals include advanced teaching-learning facilities, student amenities (such as classroom repairs and renovations, laboratories, and hostels), infrastructure development, and campus beautification initiatives. The current administration is also considering building a pylon to commemorate the glory of the century-old university.
