If we talk about a good thing there is always some negative points about that. Here we are going to discuss a few of them.

Mosque Issue:

There are a lot of buildings in UCP but I am sorry to say there is no proper mosque in university. In parking, a small area is considered as a Mosque. On the day of Jumma, there are a lot of difficulties occur when people come to pray Jumma Prayer.  There is no air-conditioning system here. Due to this, the temperature is too moist or warm. Vehicles smoke also here due to parking. After the Jumma prayer, it becomes very ripe. I hope, University management focuses on this issue. The mosque is an essential need for those who prayers.



C building  parking:

There is an addition in UCP which is C building. The new building makes UCP more spacious but there is an issue with its parking. The issue is cars are not allowed in C building parking only motor-cycles can be parked in it, which is not convenient for the students, employees or any other staff member of C building.

No. lift in building for students:

Except C building students are not allowed to use lift. Only in a few cases students  can use lift:

  • In B building students can use lift only for the library because the library is on the 5th floor. Furthermore, it’s available on the 1st floor and will directly take you to the 5th floor. You can’t stop anywhere else.
  • A building only those students can use lift who have special permission card which proves from pro-rector. Doesn’t matter other students have to go to the 3rd or 4th floor.

No lifts for Students. Only Faculty members and staff can use.

Sitting Place:

Above all, In UCP lack of sitting place for visitors is a big issue. There is no proper sitting arrangement. There are few benches in the Lobby and outside of the lobby, but these are not good as there is a lack of conditioners. Furthermore, its to difficult to sit there in Summers. Students sit on stairs, around Fountain, or on floor.

For girls, there are common rooms in building A, B, and C.

Student Support:

UCP provides some platforms for students support.

Career Service Office:

CSO is the best student support which provides information about each and everything. For instance:

  • Jobs.
  • Abroad Study.
  • UCP Career Fair.
  • Internships.

The main objective of CSO is to groom their students and makes them well-rounded individuals who can contribute positively to countries progress.

CSO makes sure that their graduated and current students make correct decisions. A large number of internships and jobs are offered to UCP students by CSO.

The largest event of CSO is called Career Fair. In this fair large number of companies come and tell about themselves and provides different opportunities for the graduates of that year. So, there are many UCP jobs but you need to find what suits you best. Apart from this, UCP careers office is always there to guide the students.
