IST at the forefront to address the dire need of Female accommodation on Campus by building a purpose built Girls Hostel under HEC Umbrella Project
The ground breaking ceremony of the new Girls Hostel was held on 07 Oct 2022 which was graced by the honorable Vice Chancellor of Institute of Space Technology, Major Gen. Rehan Abdul Baqi, HI(M), (Retd) and esteemed members of IST.
In the light of HEC’s initiative to support aspiring female participation in higher education sector, IST was successfully allowed to join an esteemed club of 6 universities which were awarded the HEC Umbrella Project- “Provision of Accommodation Facilities for Female students in Public Sector universities”. The new facility will accommodate 200 female students and boasts reserved spaces for dining hall, kitchen and laundry.
IST has always been cognizant of the dire need of a hostel facility for females hailing from other cities of the country. Construction of a new Girls hostel is aimed to overcome the prevalent accommodation shortfall so that more IST female students are provided with a safe and quality environment at IST.
