Mayor announces P38-M new building construction for University of Caloocan City

Jul 21, 2009 - 4:50:24 AM

MANILA, July 22 (PNA) -- Caloocan Mayor Enrico Recom Echiverri announced Tuesday that the local government has already began the construction of a P38 million new building for the University of Caloocan City (UCC) campus in Camarin.

The four-storey, 16 classroom, is expected to be commissioned in July 2010.

Echiverri said that the city government decided to expand the UCC Camarin facility due to its increasing enrollment.

Currently, due to space limitations in UCC's main campus located along Gen. San Miguel street, Sangandaan, a number of its colleges were assigned to different campuses in Tandang Sora along 7th Avenue; Buena Park in University Hills Subdivision; and Camarin.

The UCC is the city sole tertiary education institution for marginalized students.

However, under the Echiverri administration flagship building Schools for the Futurescheme, major construction projects for the university will go hand-in-hand with renovation and upgrading of its existing buildings and facilities.

This scheme is alongside other initiatives such as the school improvement plan to address UCC's ever increasing school population, he noted.

Either new buildings will be added or undergo major refurbishments under the scheme because it is very important for the city and its residents that we invest in education, Echiverri added.

UCC registrar Marilyn De Jesus said that the school has a total student population of a little over 10,500 undergraduate and postgraduate enrollees.

De Jesus said their main campus in Caloocan South has 4,985 enrollees while their Camarin Campus in Caloocan North has a population of 5,698 students. (PNA)

"the building is almost done. beaming with the administration's flagship color royal blue & yellow. It is really a great help for us UCCians but I think not the color. when we were having classes in NR rooms especially when it's sunny day it's really an eyesore seeing the building splendent with royal blue & yellow. Iam not complaining. I am just simply saying that maybe we can tone down the color so that our eyes wouldn't hurt that much. I can't even stare at the building longer than 3 minutes." I hope to post pictures later.

( as promised..i updated this and the pictures are there.)

it is not yet functional as of the moment and I don't know when they plan to use it. there are still remaining things to fix. I've heard there (is) (will) be a basement parking here.
