NDO – Construction of the first building serving teaching and research activities at the Hanoi University of Science (HUS) under the Vietnam National University, Hanoi (VNU), started on March 7 in the Hoa Lac urban area.

The building, named HT1, is located in Zone 4 of the HUS construction project, and is part of another project on building the new VNU headquarters in Hoa Lac.

The HT1 construction is the first activity that the VNU has deployed since the university took over the VNU building project in Hoa Lac from the Ministry of Construction in January 2018.

The five-storey building, dedicated to the Faculty of Mathematics, Mechanics and Informatics, has a total ground area of 14,330sq.m. It is being built at a total cost of VND 113.9 billion (US$ 5 million) and is scheduled to be finished in 2019.

The HUS construction project, approved by the Construction Ministry in December 2014, is set to serve the training of 12,800 university students and 2,000 high school students. It covers 65.1ha of land and has a total investment capital of VND 3.1 trillion (US$ 136.5 million). It consists of nine zones, from Zone 1 to Zone 9, divided according to their functions.

VNU Rector Nguyen Kim Son said the VNU is also making preparations to start the building of other facilities this year, such as those of the University of Engineering and Technology, the International School, and the Tran Nhan Tong Institute.

Covering more than 1,000ha of land, the VNU project in Hoa Lac comprises of 21 sub-projects and is designed as a high-quality university city. Several facilities of the project have already been put into use.
