The Collaboration of WU with Local Authorities Regarding Affordable Housing

Walailak University was established in 1992 on a land area initially designated for shared public agricultural purposes, covering 20,800,000 square meters. The university’s land was divided into two main parts: one for the establishment of the university, which includes the educational area, student residence areas, the medical center, sports fields, the Smart Farm, and historic sites, covering about 14,400,000 square meters. The other part was designated for land allocation to the public for residential purposes, encompassing more than 5,760,000 square meters. Walailak University has consistently carried out this land allocation project for the community under the name of the “Satit Walailak Pattana Community Project”.
