Mowbray Campus revamp underway

HARD HAT AREA: Massive construction work is underway at Mowbray Campus HARD HAT AREA: Massive construction work is underway at Mowbray Campus

From a state of the art computer centre to extensions to the library, the academic lives of students at the Mowbray Campus will never be the same.

From alterations of existing buildings and the building of new facilities, the multi-million rand construction work which is underway will change the campus’ landscape forever.

The new computer centre will consist of six computer venues with the capacity to accommodate more than 400 students, a server centre, offices for technicians, a lift and parking lot.

In addition to extending the library a new floor is also being built to accommodate a children’s library.

The existing gym is also in for a massive facelift as three air-conditioned lecture rooms will be built on its top and its ablution facilities will be upgraded.

A walkway linking the gym to the main building will also be built.

In the main building the Dean’s suite will be remodelled and computer rooms renovated to accommodate teaching facilities.

Other construction work includes new paraplegic toilets, a chemistry laboratory and new security entrance.

Dr Ivan November, Assistant Dean of the Education Faculty which is housed at the campus, says the new entrance will improve campus security.

The mega project costs R47.2 million and will be completed in January 2016.

It is part of an almost R600 million investment in infrastructure which was made available by the Department of Higher Education and Training and topped up by the university.
