The CCE Complex Hall was officially established in 1982 in the following manner;The Hall initially accommodated Adult-learner students of the Centre for Continuing Education (CCE) as well as the direct young entrants to the University.The Hall in addition to female students housed on the two floors of the main building complex, also housed male students in 4 blocks i.e. Nsubuga, Sepuya, Bamugye and Semakokiro that were later renamed blocks AA, BB, CC and DD.
The complexity of the Hall was further compounded by the fact that it belonged to both the Centre for Continuing Education (CCE) and well as the Office of the Dean of Students, who each had a percentage of students to be accommodated by then.The main building complex was originally constructed in 1969 out of a 600,000 pounds grant from the Danish Government. Hall CultureThe students decided to call themselves the crocodiles because of the continued flooding that occurred at front of the hall following heavy downpours. Owing to their association to the Old Mitchell hall, the "Crocodiles" formed a strong solidarity with the New Mitchell hall residents (Rats) known as "Mitchllex".Click here for more on CCE Complex Hall Culture
