Opening of new USP campus delayed


The much-anticipated opening of the new University of the South Pacific (USP)Solomon Islands Campus in East Honiara has been delayed due to pending furniture installations.

USPSI Campus Director, Billy Fitoo confirmed this with Island Sun recently.

Initially scheduled to open doors in May, in time for the start of the second semester, Fitoo explained that the delay is expected to be resolved with the arrival of furniture by late July.

The director further confirmed that once the campus is furnished, it is set to officially open in October.

Designed to serve as USP’s public health school in the region, the new campus boasts cutting-edge features including modern technology, high-speed internet, state-of-the-art learning and teaching facilities, and energy-efficient lighting.

Funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB), the USP’s second largest campus is predicted to accommodate over 4,000 students.
