With increasing demand couple with advancement in computer technology, the Unical ICT initiated many reforms including the establishment of some stand-alone fully networked computer resource rooms like the E-Library and its extension, Physics computer resource room, Computer Science Computer laboratory and so on. Presently, such computer resource rooms also exist in law, Sen. (Prof.) Ben Ayade ICT Centre, social sciences, linguistics, medical college and many other Departments and Faculties in the University.

The centre has been serving the diverse ICT needs of both the University Community and its partners.
