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, since in some
cases only a portion of the master plan were constructed due to
financial reasons. Recently a separate bulding for Humanities have
been completed. However, because of rational, planned and optimal
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
international journals, reprographic facilities, computers, reading
room, book banks and ensured electric supply are some points that
demand more attention.
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
In spite of the recurrent flood that takes away almost three
precious months of the students that could have otherwise been
properly utilized for development of extra curricular activities,
the student have proved their worth in sports in many state and
national level 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 Senate.
Besides hostel facilities available in different constituent
colleges of the University, there are four (three for boys and one
for girls) hostels, with all essential amenities. However, constant
electric supply is a problem, being faced regularly by he students.
In recent years these hostels have been repaired and provided with
some more facilities as per the need of the students.
There is a Grievance Redressal Cell and some welfare programmes for
the faculty and staff. But, none of these are in regular action due
to financial region. However, facility like loan etc. are provided
depending upon need and availability of funds.
