The Hall was built to commemorate Kumasi College of Technology’s attainment of University status and named “University Hall”. It was dedicated by Mr. Kwaku Boateng, the Minister of Education, on January 19, 1963.
Katanga became a household name because of its fearless endeavour to spearhead the fight for students’ rights. Most actions to defend student’s rights, either on campus or nationwide had also been planned, influenced or led from Katanga. This is one trademark which has made the hall so famous.
