FAIZABAD (Pajhwok): A newly-constructed hostel for girls was on Wednesday inaugurated on the university campus in northeastern Badakhshan province, an official said.

The three-storey building has 33 rooms, a solar electricity system and other modern facilities, the university chancellor, Khesraw Nazari, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Having the capacity to accommodate 250 students, the hostel building cost 53 million afghanis funded by Germany and took two years to complete, he said.

Janan Gul, one of the students, said before they lived in rented rooms which had been expensive and far away from the university.
