The sprawling Delhi University campus is located in the city of Delhi-the capital of India. Delhi is a blend of its rich heritage, grand monuments- a legacy of its ruler’s long gone, and versatile modernity. Delhi University also celebrates this fact with aplomb. Some of the old yet stately government buildings and a few modern architectural marvels now house the offices of the Delhi University.
Situated in the heart of Delhi, amidst lush green acreage the campuses of the Delhi University make for an atmosphere, that aids academic and creative pursuits. With over 3, 00,000 students, 14 faculties, 86 academic department, and 79 colleges, it is one of the largest universities in India. The University is spread all over the city and has used the concept of multi-campus to cope with its enormous growth.
The North Campus, is the oldest campus, and is so named as it lies in the northern part of city. Started way back in 1922, the North Campus has some of India’s best colleges located within its precincts. A host of historical landmarks dot the North Campus landscape, which gives this whole area an old-world charm. Add to that a verdant green cover and you have one of the most picturesque campuses of India. In 1973, the South Campus stated its operations out of a rented building. In 1983, offices and teaching activities shifted to the newly erected South Campus near Dhaula Kuan (an area in the southern part of Delhi). South Campus has very quickly made a name for itself as a location of academic excellence. It makes available to the students all the facilities that promote and enhance their learning experience.

All in all, the Delhi University spans four campuses, all of whom are located in a way such that they provide the ideal environment for education.
