In terms of infrastructures and environment development, KKU has been keeping its environment and ecology clean and green with great help and cooperation from the KKU community. Students and personnel are familiar with the green area and want to maintain it that way to be used as their recreation area. New infrastructures also have been added up to facilitate visitors. Examples of care given to the infrastructure are; the regular maintaining and repairing of roads, having dual piping system for both good water and waste-water to have a reserved system in case of break down. For energy, KKU has established its own solar farm to help saving the energy and be more energy independent.
