As a result, there is an urgent need for student hostel like this which I represented the president to commission at the University of Professional Studies Accra – UPSA on Tuesday 14th March, 2023.
The facility which was named after the eminent designer of the nation’s Coat of Arms, the late Nii Amon Kotei is a 10-storey hostel complex with a 1664-bed capacity.
It is also furnished with ultra-modern facilities such as study rooms, Junior Common Rooms (JCR), a recreational area, a laundry area, TV rooms, CCTV cameras, an elevator, Automated Teller Machine (ATM), just to mention a few.
