[TamilNet, Wednesday, 23 March 2005, 18:10 GMT]
Foundation stone was laid Wednesday morning for the 91 million rupee-project to construct a building complex to house the Trincomalee campus of the Eastern University in 250 acre-land allocated in Konesapuri, 16 km north of Trincomalee town along Trincomalee-Pulmoddai road. Trincomalee campus is currently functioning in rented buildings in the east port town without adequate space for its academic activities and lack of hostel facilities for students, sources said.

The project includes the construction of a two-storied administrative block, dormitories for students, library building and other related academic infra structure facilities, the sources said.
