How KNUST’s University Hall Came By The Name KATANGA. Many individuals feel Katanga is the name of KNUST’s first all-male hall. The University Hall is the official name of the building, which originally inaugurated on January 19, 1963. The university hall, Katanga Hall, was converted into a mixed hall for the 2018/2019 academic year, amidst violent demonstrations.

Why Katanga 

At the time of the hall’s opening, the Congo conflict was at its height. Katanga, a Congolese province, attempted to break away from the newly constituted state. The province claimed it was responsible for more than half of Congo’s income and hence need self-sufficiency. As a result, the building was given the name KATANGA by the University Hall’s inaugural students in celebration of the province’s great mineral wealth. This was an attempt to convey the hall’s diverse resident and graduate population.

However, there has been a long-held misconception that the name Katanga was chosen because of the province’s rebellious nature. This is due to the involvement of a few fellows in scandalous actions on and near the KNUST campus.
