Collaboration with a well-known American University

What it will include
The goal is to create a “green” University that will be accessible to people with disabilities and will include: -Large number of laboratories-Cafeteria-Theater-Gym-Basketball and volleyball courts
It is worth noting that in a statement, the Famagusta Chamber of Commerce and Industry (EVEA) expressed satisfaction and welcomed the Government’s decision to lease state land in Ayia Napa for the establishment of a university unit in the area.
According to the effort, which began about four years ago by the former Mayor of Ayia Napa and current Minister of Transport, Communications and Works, Mr. Giannis Karousos, it was continued by the current Mayor, Mr. Christos Zannetos, with a good result.
EVEA believes that the creation of the University will give impetus to the fight against seasonality in businesses in Ayia Napa but also in the surrounding communities and Municipalities, since a significant number of students that can reach up to 4,000, will live and work in the area giving life in the area and during the winter months.
The establishment of the University is another step in the right direction, which together with additional other planned projects such as e.g. The creation of golf courses and the upgrading of the sports facilities of the area, will give life to the free area of Famagusta and will help to expand the tourist season, points out EVEA.
