Saint Monica University Gets New Ground Campus in Buea
Classrooms, Auditorium, Dining Facilities, Residential Hostels, & Sporting Facilities Available
By: Saint Monica University
The new 11-hectare campus is located at the legendary Mount Cameroon Sports Complex, Kumba Road, Liongo (just outside of Muea) in Buea, Southwest Region of Cameroon. Before being taken over by SMU, the campus housed the Mount Cameroon Football Club of Buea, one time national champions in Cameroon, as well as a sports academy.
“As an American-style university operating in Cameroon, SMU intends to provide an academic environment that meets international standards and that is why we have invested heavily in our ground campus in Buea,” said Professor Januarius Jingwa (JJ) Asongu, President and Chief Executive Officer of SMU. “In selecting this campus, we took into consideration its location as well as the various amenities available in the campus. We have classrooms capable of accommodating over 5,000 students and hostels for about 2,000 on-campus residential students. We’ll also provide students with great sporting and recreational facilities, dining facilities, library, laboratories, and other such necessities in a secure and conducive environment.”
“I am happy to provide SMU with such a great campus and I will assist the university in every manner within my reach,” said the Honorable Calvin Foinding, Deputy Speaker of the Cameroon Parliament and proprietor of the Mount Cameroon Sports Complex. “The Cameroon government has been encouraging Cameroonians in the Diaspora to invest in the country and I am happy that the promoters of SMU, some of whom are Cameroonians in the Diaspora, have heeded to this call. I am sure that both the management of the university as well as the students will enjoy the facilities and the atmosphere of this campus.”
