Speaking to mediapersons here on Wednesday CUK Vice-Chancellor A M Pathan said Union Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal will lay foundation stone for the CUK at the sprawling 621 acres of land at Kadaganchi in Aland taluk, about 22 km from here, on October 29. That will mark the beginning of the construction of buildings for the new varsity at a cost of Rs 70 crore in the first phase.

The buildings proposed are administrative block, sports complex, hostels for boys and girls, guest house, residential quarters for teaching and non-teaching staff, library, academic plaza, and health centre.

Pathan said after a month tenders will be called for road and electricity works at a cost of Rs 50 crore and by February 2011 another tender will be called for the construction of  academic buildings at a cost of about Rs 40 crore.

The campus will be fully WiFi enabled and the buildings will be based on green technology with state-of-the-art devices. He said it will be one of the best national institutions in the country in terms of infrastructure.

The CUK, which has already started four Schools and seven departments with about 150 students, has plans to move over to its own campus in January 2012. Till then it will continue to function from the Gulbarga University campus.

“We have submitted a proposal to the UGC for starting a medical college and a teaching hospital  at a cost of Rs 400 crore on the campus and we hope to get the green signal’’ Pathan said.
