After the conference, our media representatives were brought in to visit the area around EduCity. Among the places we went were the EduCity Sport Complex and the Student Village. I am really excited about the grandeur of the entire design of EduCity Sport Complex including the Aquatic Centre, Stadium and Indoor Arena. I am also interested in the design and facilities provided by the student village. Most interesting is that the student village has provided a lounge area for students to relax and have fun with friends. This has proven that EduCity have provided excellent facilities for the benefit of the students there.
