One of the major problems faced by the Kumasi Campus of the Valley View University (VVU) is the lack of a permanent campus to accommodate the teaming numbers enrolling in the school by the day.
This challenge has caused the University to operate from two separate sites, Kwadaso and Kenyasi, a situation that has greatly affected smooth running of the Ashanti Regional Campus of the Nation’s most prominent Private University. But Rector of the University, Pastor Dr. E. B. Amponsah, has stated that the long awaited permanent campus of the Seventh-Day Adventist owned and managed university, is ready for utilization.
In a meeting held on Thursday, 25th April 2019 between students and faculty members on one side, and the Campus Management Committee (CMC) on the other side, Pastor Amponsah announced that the campus which is about 75% complete, has got the necessary facilities needed to begin academic work (25 lecture halls, an ultramodern library, water facilities, power connection, etc), hence, the need to move in to use the site. “As I speak, chairs and other equipment are being moved from Kwadaso to the new campus for academic work to begin”, the Rector said, adding that there is a very high probability that the Sandwich students at Kenyasi would also move in to join their regular counterparts as from next session.
The new campus is located between the Oduom Roundabout and the railway line on one’s way to Ejisu in the Ashanti Region.
