The foundation stone of two ten-storied- one for male and another for female- halls were laid at Islamic University in Kushtia on Wednesday amid festive mood and much enthusiasm.

A total of one thousand male and one thousand female students could reside in these halls, IU treasurer Professor M Alamgir Hossain Bhuiya said.

The building will have students room, guest room, provost office, house tutor rooms, reading room, library, etc.

The name of the halls would be finalised after completing the construction work of the halls, he said.

Earlier, a discussion programme on the occasion of inaugurating the halls was held where Mahbubul Alam Hanif spoke as the chief guest with IU VC Professor Shaikh Abdus Salam was in the chair.
