The Lagos State Government is embarking on a project to reposition the Lagos State University (LASU), by the end of 2015. The aim of the project is to make the institution an enviable citadel of learning with a wide range of super-structures and top grade amenities.
Presently, facilities being put in place in the university include a modern central library, a befitting senate building, a functional radio station operating from the school’s main campus, and many other structures that are already at advanced stages of construction.
The state commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Obafemi Hamsat, during a tour of the construction sites at the campus in Ojo, Lagos, disclosed that the structures are strictly financed by the state government and are aimed at meeting the physical needs of the students.
Other structures expected in the school include students’ union arcade, a lecture theatre for Law students and a prototype of two- and three-bedroom apartments of the state’s Home Ownership Mortgage Scheme (HOMS) house types.
