Bangalore University (BU) is planning to convert the Central College building into Museum to retain its importance. BU Vice-chancellor, B Thimme Gowda suggested that the iconic central campus be converted in to a museum.
Presently, the century old central college campus has already working as a temporary campus for the new D V G Jananvahini University and it serving a office of the special officer of the DVG university, K R Venugopal, even as it hosts existing BU departments.
Speaking at a programme organized by the Centre for Kannada Studies, Prof Gowda said he would hold discussions with the government to convert the central college campus into a museum to 'retain it importance'.
Central College will serve as new university's campus for a period of five years after which it will be converted into a 'Centre for Excellence'.
Recently, Bangalore University has divided into two universities such as, Bangalore University (Jnanabharathi Campus) and DVG Jnanavahini University (The Hoskote Campus) from 2013-14 onwards.
Around 150 acre of land has been reserved for the new university.
