The Papua New Guinea University of Natural Resource and Environment in East New Britain, will see the completion of its new sporting facilities, come this July.
Constructions commenced in 2012, following a twenty K22 million funding from the National Government.
Under the leadership of the University’s Vice Chancellor Professor Phillip Siaguru, external auditors are engaged with the institution, on a monthly basis for auditing.
The school located in Gazelle District, is a city on its own. It has a student population of over five thousand students in all its three campuses in the nation.
This new sporting facility includes two courts each for netball, volleyball, and basketball, and rugby and soccer fields. Half of this twenty K22 million was used to revive UNRE’s Maprik campus in East Sepik. The school is currently operating with its first intakes.
In terms of building facilities, UNRE has some of the best staff and student accommodation, compared to its two sister universities. Well maintained lecture rooms and a recently built administration building.
However, UNRE is also facing overcrowding issues after taking on board its students from the New Ireland campus. Meanwhile, two new flats for female lecturers have also been completed, and are ready for use. Four new tuffa tanks were also installed.
