Our sprawling two-acre, verdant campus incorporates heritage structures and complementary contemporary additions. The campus has abundant spaces outside, around and beyond the built areas, where true growth occurs. These transitional shared spaces encourage students to co-create visions and are pivotal in promoting holistic transformation and progress.
WCFA’s two-acre campus is a seamless architectural blend of the past, present, and future. We have carefully preserved the library and the administrative block, two of the historic buildings on campus.
Our new learning spaces include lecture halls, studios, computer labs, and exhibition halls, canteen, among others, built with an open plan design to encourage interaction and collaboration. All of them converge around the Courtyard, a serene space for thought-provoking discussions also doubling up as a small amphitheatre.
Life at Campus
Mysuru is a city that seamlessly mixes the urban and rural to provide stimulating experiences and is known for possessing a rich academic history. This cultural and historical backdrop allows students to explore and engage with architecture in varied contexts. Mysuru’s sharp, cerebral atmosphere is matched by a languid pace of life, which lends itself to reflection and mindfulness.
Geographically, Mysuru is small enough to spare long commutes, giving students precious time to engage in education as well as indulge in different activities.
The WCFA campus is situated in the heart of the city, a short walk away from Ramaswamy circle, next to the City Courts. Set in the heritage area of the city bordering the Mysore University campus, the College is surrounded by the residential areas of Saraswathipuram, Kuvempu Nagar and Chamarajpuram. Students can easily find boarding facilities just 100 metres from the campus while the city railway station is less than 2 km away.
As an institution made up of people from all walks of life, WCFA has a deep appreciation for all cultures and the defining expressions that come with it. We take pleasure in organising college events, such as the Foundation Day, music programs and dance performances among others. Aroha is an annual event for warmly welcoming new students and giving a heartfelt farewell to the graduating students. Festival celebrations are organised throughout the year.
We believe every artistic thought deserves an expression. WCFA provides a venue for students to explore their creative potential to the maximum and facilitate student interaction. Student clubs at the WCFA include poetry, reading, drama, history, and many others whose objectives are to develop not just the students’ artistic but also leadership potential.
WCFA’s very own student-run magazine. Covering campus activities and student life, and reporting on the latest in-campus developments, “The Courtyard” captures the WCFA’s zeitgeist with sure editorial hands and is a reflection of our collective spirit.
“On the pod” is the independent voice of every student at our institution. In Conversation with Students, life during the pandemic, music, cooking and some fun yet important conversations that line the corridors of WCFA. Aired on Spotify, Google Podcasts, Apple Podcasts, RadioPublic and other mediums.
At WCFA, we are fiercely committed to safeguarding student welfare. And that begins with setting high standards for maintaining the physical, mental, and emotional health of our students. To ensure that we do meet and implement these standards at all times, we have formed multiple committees addressing a wide range of life issues.
