The Maldives National University today has announced that the institution will be embarking on a project to develop a two-story property to provide housing for the MNU staff. In the staff meeting held this afternoon the Vice Chancellor, Dr. Ali Fawaz Shareef said “I understand housing has been a big concern for many of our staff and some work has been carried to ease and tackle it. Day before yesterday we got some green signal on a housing project and yesterday the Council approved that MNU will get a land from Hulhumale’ second phase to develop two-towers. We estimate to complete development of the property within a period of two years and we will be able to build 360 flats for MNU”
He affirmed that the Council has already approved finance to commence the project and also has given approval to seek funding to complete the housing project. He indicated that hopefully tomorrow night the contract will be signed and a ceremony will be held to lay the foundation stone of the two-tower property.
He further stated that the management is working diligently on the details of the project and as such the application forms, criteria and selection process will be shared with the staff in a very near future. He went on to add “our thinking and aim is to provide housing for staff of all level and believe all will benefit from it. This has become a reality after a lot of hard work by the Chancellor and the Deputy Vice Chancellors. The fruitful success of this effort will reach and benefit our staff.”
After making the announcement Vice Chancellor gave the opportunity for the staff to inquire about the project and answered accordingly.
