Procedures and policies for maintaining and utilizing physical, academic and support facilities

The university campus exhibits an excellent academic ambience with buildings constructed with sustainable building materials. Further, the technologies employed in the campus are water-conserving, energy-efficient and renewable energy sources.

Our university has established a robust system for the maintenance of physical and academic support facilities. A range of committees, offices and persons are entrusted with the responsibility of a periodic and regular review of the status of the facilities and of planning and executing maintenance-related activities promptly.

The Maintenance Committee oversees the maintenance and utilization of academic, physical and support facilities such as the library, sports complex, labs, classrooms, computers and other facilities. The Committees are responsible for planning, purchasing and controlling the use of physical resources on the advice of higher authorities.
