The High walls of NKT National College of Education for Women surround and safeguard the premises of the College from all directions with a high-rise Gate facing north. Institution security encompasses all measures taken to combat threats to people and property in education environments. A safe learning environment ensures overall development of students and security and safety are always of the utmost importance on the College campus.
There is a dedicated room for the Security personnel by the side of the gate, vigilantly scanning the entrance. The College is under the surveillance of cameras installed in all directions and in all places, including College Entrance, Parking Areas, Play Grounds, College Office & Principal Room, Examination Unit, Pathways, Library, Madaboosi Sudarsanam Iyengar (Multipurpose Hall), Padma Bhushan Sarojini Varadappan Hall and Kamala Nehru Women’s Hostel. Fire extinguishers are also an integral part of the institution. They are drilled in almost all places for unforeseen emergencies and for safety and security of material and human resources.
The College is situated in Triplicane, at the centre of Chennai District and it’s a thickly populated place with low and high commercial establishments. Hence, there are unexpected power cuts in this part of the city especially during the summer months. Hence, for continuous academic and academic related and outreach activities, the College maintains a 125 KVA Generator for uninterrupted power supply. The College has also a mobile generator to support outdoor activities.
The entire campus is Wi-fi enabled with high speed internet connection to allow the students, faculty and administration staff to access the internet no-matter wherever they are. The coverage is not just limited to the classrooms; instead it extends to all the facilities including Hostel within the campus premises.
Accessibility means uninterrupted mobility for all to reach their fullest potential. Students and other people with reduced mobility, permanent to impermanent disabilities, like pregnant women, senior citizens, children and youth, have the right to inclusive and accessible environments. This means equal opportunities for all, in all aspects of life, from education to work. All the buildings in the institution are provided with ramps for ease of movement for all. As the creation of accessible institution buildings alone will not provide appropriate access to education for all students, the abilities of students with disabilities are greatly enhanced with appropriate assistive devices and technologies to support their learning needs.
Providing access to drinking water gives students a healthy alternative to sugar-sweetened beverages. As adequate drinking water facilities helps to increase students’ overall water consumption and maintain hydration, the College has RO Drinking Water Facilities.
