The university is running in the
buildings donated by Maharaja of Darbhanga, that
were originally built either to run his office or for
residential purposes for Maharaja himself, his family
and staff. A few years following its establishment and
subsequent recognition by the U.G.C. a master plan (
copy attached) was developed. Till date, only the
science faculties have their own infrastructural
facilities, that too, can not be said to be complete,

were constructed due to financial reasons. Recently a
separate bulding for Humanities have been completed.

utilization of our infrastructure we are able in
augmenting our academic needs to a reasonable existent.
The Central Library, as per the master plan, has also
been partially constructed and in use with more than 1.7
lacs books, but availability of national and

In the current financial year
provision of funds by the U.G.C. has ensured some
infrastructural advancements. Steps have also been taken
to establish a centralized computer facility centre and
a training schedule for the University personnel.
The University has its own health centre with duly
appointed full and part time medical personnel. However,
compulsory general medical check up is not mandatory.
Maintenance of individual health record and health
insurance is not in practice. The facilities are readily
available for all members of the University family with
an emergency van ambulance.

events. The University, within its premises, possess two
grade A – playgrounds but other infrastructural
facilities are also available only upto the extent that
the University can manage from its own resources. The
incentives given to the students, the participation and
outcome at national level have already been depicted
(Cr. IV). Besides, the overall champions in both boys
and girls events are directly nominated as members of
