He also inaugurated the new examination building, knowledge resource centre and the girls' hostel. "The University of Mumbai was founded in 1857, the year India fought its first war of Independence against the colonial rulers," Koshyari said, citing that it was Savarkar who had described the uprising against the British as the "first war of Independence". "Naming the international students hostel after Savarkar will enhance respect for India in the hearts and minds of students," he said.
The governor further said that apart from imparting education, the University must imbibe the values of sanskriti and sanskar (culture) in students. He also expressed hope that an international sports complex will be sanctioned at the University shortly. The international students' hostel has the capacity to accommodate 146 students, while the girls' hostel can house 144 students.
