Substantially Increasing Student Accommodation on Large Campuses

Building and funding an increase in student accommodation on the large campuses has proven problematic, because of high construction costs due to a building boom in Fiji, the high cost of building in remote locations, and scarcity of development funding. Despite this the University opened new accommodation blocks on the Laucala Campus, and at the Marshall Islands Campus in 2017.

Plans are being considered for further development at Laucala, in an ambitious FJ$20-25 million project.
