Inauguration of Capt. Haleem Ahmad Siddiqui Boys’ Hostel

During the past few years IBA Karachi has witnessed a substantial increase in the number of students from outside Karachi including a few wards of overseas Pakistani’s. The old Boys’ Hostel building hence became insufficient and capacity constraints pressed for the need for a magnificent and spacious building. As a result, a New Boys’ Hostel was decided to be constructed in July 2011. IBA is proud to announce the commissioning of this brand new multi storied New Boys’ Hostel building adjacent to the previous hostel. The building has since been dedicated in the name of Capt. Haleem Ahmad Siddiqui who has very generously donated Rs.75 million for its construction.

 

Physical Characteristics The New Boys’ Hostel is spread over an area of 47,956 sq. ft. The three storied building houses 108 single bed rooms to provide comfortable accommodation for a large number of students. Each bed room is fully furnished with attached shelves, in- built wardrobe, a bedside table and a study desk. Catering to the needs of modern day business education, the Hostel is also equipped with a Wi-Fi facility and generators for backup power supply.
