|Entrance to ERC||The Reception|
The Guest House in UTC is called the Ecumenical Resource Centre (ERC). It is meant for guests of the college and those who wish to stay for academic purposes, as part of exchange programmes and also for sight seeing. It was inaugurated on 25th September 1999. It also houses a conference hall and two seminar rooms which are used for local, national and international conferences. The ERC is located in the heart of the UTC campus, which is at a walkable distance from the Cantonment railway station in Bangalore. The building was specially designed to meet the growing needs of churches and non-governmental organisations, looking for reasonable, well-equipped and comfortable facilities for their meetings and conferences. The location of the facility amidst rich greenery gives a solemn feeling of being close to nature and offers a meditative and restful atmosphere for guests. Parking facility is available and airport taxis can be called in from the front office of the ERC. Volvo buses from the airport stop in Miller's road which is the road in front of the UTC gate.
