Externado opens new academic and recreational spaces for professors and students

Starting Monday, April 15, 2019, the reading and teaching faculty rooms in Building A and El Solar multifunction areas will be available to our community.

With the goal to offer our students and professors new and better academic and recreational spaces, the Externado de Colombia University introduces three just completed projects that also respond to the technological needs of those using them.

Reading Room – Building A

The remodeling of this space began in late 2018. With 264 square meters and room for 165 persons, this area is currently equipped with chairs and study tables suitable for using the Externadista community technological equipment. It also has screens that can be connected to these devices via HMI cable.

This area also features rooms for group meetings.

El Solar Multifunctional Court

Another space that, as of now, our students can enjoy is two multiple courts, located in El Solar, which can be adapted for sports such as basketball (3 x 3), banquitas (micro-soccer) (3 x 3), and tennis soccer.

To encourage students’ sports aptitudes and good use of their free time, this court will not be used for training, only for recreation; thus, students wishing to use them need only to contact the University Well-Being.

Building A – Teaching Faculty Room

This area was constructed where the A-101 and A-102 rooms used to be. Currently, it has 131 square meters and a capacity for 75 people; it is a space exclusively for our professors.

The same as the reading room, the teaching staff room is equipped to handle technology needs, and also screens that can be connected through HMI cable.

Additionally, the area features individual cubicles for those wishing particular concentration.
