For years, teachers visiting the Dr Ambedkar Law University on DGS Dinakaran Salai, for evaluation duty usually have a difficult time finding lodging. However, this may be a thing of the past as the university’s campus in Taramani will be up and running from next academic year.

University Vice-Chancellor Dr V Vijayakumar said the campus would come up near the Taramani MRTS Station. “We have prepared a plan for the campus and tenders are expected to be floated soon,” he said. The PWD will be the implementing agency for the project, that includes construction of seven blocks, estimated to cost Rs 59.27 crore. The V-C was confident of completion of the project by July 2014.

Students of the varsity can also breathe easy as the departments, which have been perennially constrained for space, would shift to the new campus. Departments that have been proposed to shift to the new campus include the  post-graduate departments and the Undergraduate School of Excellence. The The Taramani campus will have blocks dedicated for administration, academics and a library. However, offices of the controller of examinations and the academic staff college would remain on the old campus.
