The new building will be a three-story building that will be located on campus of the Andrés Bello Campus of the University of La Serena and whose facilities will serve for careers in Nursing, Psychology and institutional common areas for teaching.

'' The improvement of this laboratory benefits us enormously, the technology advances very fast and the University of La Serena is at the forefront, with modern equipment that without a doubt all the students are grateful. With this, which adds to the approval of resources for the building, we feel supported and we see notorious signs that concern us all, "he said.
The student was also grateful for the tireless management of the academic Dr. Eugenia Urra and the officials Guillermo Cáceres, in charge of information technology of the Campus, and Elson Romero, who, among others, actively collaborated to achieve this desired initiative.
'' We are a community and we owe it to our students, it is for this reason that we do everything to have the best working conditions in this Campus that has very different needs, a particular dynamic and without a doubt this is the beginning of a new stage, where it is necessary to reflect to make a better University, "said the academic.
During the day there was room to share and where directors of both schools, teachers and students, gave Rector Avilés their impressions and spontaneously indicated their projects and needs, including the improvement of rooms and furniture, with a new vision of good common.

Our directors, professors and officials gave us a lesson and we prove that willing is power. We saw them run to fulfill all the requirements of the project and make a great effort that today has this result.
