The College has seen a breakthrough in the infrastructural front as well. The installation of 125 kva generator on the campus is the most important one. As a result, we could tide over the frequent power failures on the campus. By providing separate speakers in each class room, the public address system is made more effective. Internet connectivity is now extended to all departments. Intercom facility is given to all departments and office rooms.
A mini conference hall is built up and furnished just adjacent to the Principal’s Office. Rev. Dr. John Vallamattam Hall is now transformed into a state-of-the art conference hall with individual microphones attached to each seat. A new dining hall is also built up to facilitate social gatherings more homely. A new roofing has been done to Mar Mathew Pothanamuzhy Hall with aluminum sheets. All PG class rooms are now furnished with LCD projectors and comfortable chairs for the students.
The fully air conditioned Msgr. Palamattam Centre for English Communication with 30 computers is an addition to the infrastructure. The UGC sponsored Ladies Hostel is nearing completion. The Canteen is also getting renovated.
The University Information Centre functioning in the college gives information regarding different courses, model question papers for reference, time table and results of examinations, application format of refresher courses, details of career training programmes and all relevant university orders regarding eligibility, recognition of different courses and certificates of foreign educational institutions.
The University Study Centre started functioning on the campus on 23 April 2003. The centre provides a reference library to the students and teachers of the affiliated colleges of the University. This is the only such centre in Idukki District. The centre has the facility to access nearly 5000 e-journals on the net.
The Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) study centre which functions on the campus is of great help to those who are not in the regular stream of education. The centre conducts courses on a host of disciplines of contemporary relevance like Tourism, Computer sciences, Health Education, Human Rights etc.. Prof. K.P. Benny, Department of Commerce is its co-ordinator.
The college has set up a ‘yoga centre’ for the students, teachers and even the general public. Yogacharya Sri. Paul Madathikandam is the master. Nearly 20 people are practising yoga in the morning and evening sessions. Prof. Benny Mathew, Director of Physical Education, is in-charge of the centre.
The construction of the UGC sponsored Women’s Hostel is half-way through. The UGC has sanctioned Rs.80 lakhs for the purpose. It is expected that the hostel will be operational by the end of 2012.
The UGC has sanctioned Rs.70,00000 for the construction of a full fledged indoorstadium. When it is materialized it will be the first of its kind in the district of Idukki.
Sufficient learning resources are an inevitable part of the educational requirements. In this regard, the college is fortunate enough to have a well functioning library under the stewardship of Ms. Liz Jacob, the Librarian. The UGC sponsored Network Resource Centre is very much functional in the library which enables the students to access learning resources through internet.
