Our campus at Bhopal

Our new University is located about 18 kilometres from the heart of Bhopal, at Kanhasaiya.

In Phase 1, the campus is ready with an academic block with state-of-the-art classrooms, equipped labs, a fully set-up library, and a hostel block with accommodation for about 300 students.

The fully complete 50-acre campus when built will have the capacity to accommodate 6,0008,000 students. The complete campus will have buildings for academic sessions, auditoriums, student hostels, and residences for our University members. We make sure to have the latest technology for our sports infrastructure and a wonderful library.

Our campus is built to be environment friendly, with extensive facilities for water conservation, solar power and local species-based tree cover and landscaping. Inclusiveness is at the heart of our campus space, and we will house the new Azim Premji School which will be open to the local community in Bhopal.

The University at Bhopal will work synergistically with our University at Bengaluru, and eventually our proposed Universities at Ranchi and in the Northeast. With this, we are working towards building a large educational ecosystem across the country.
