It is hoped that eventually a school of architecture may be founded in connection with the University. The Campus occupies about 150 acres of land outside the ancient city walls, from which it is separated by the river, which skirts its southern boundary. The main entrance gateway is placed on the north and south axis of the central plot, at the point where the approach roads from the east and south gates meet. The disposition of the five important buildings on this plot and their relation to each other have been considered with a view to obtaining not only a harmonious and well-balanced scheme of grouping on the plot itself, hut also in relation to the surrounding plots and buildings of the associated missionary societies.
