This university established in 1970, stands on the Asian Highway, popularly known as Dhaka-Aricha Road, 32 km away from the capital city of Dhaka. Spread over 697.56 acres of land, the campus lies between the Bangladesh Public Administration Training Centre (BPATC) and the Savar Cantonment, on the north of which is the National Monument. The University has 4 faculties, 24 academic departments, 5000 students and 347 teachers. Moreover, there are two institutes for specialized Research and Training. It is basically a residential university with 9 dorms, 5 for boys and 4 for girls. The topography of the picturesque surrounding area with its gentle rise and plains, the water bodies sprawling around, makes the campus an excellent habitat for the winter birds that flock in every year in thousands, and makes bird-watching a favorite pastime for many.
