Once you get a proper location, you need to look after the infrastructure, adequate seats, bike/cycle parking facility, recreational facility are few things that you need to keep in mind. Proper infrastructure is necessary if you offer practical classes along with theoretical classes like a separate room for computer lab or physics lab etc
