Gujarat University (GU), Ahmedabad

Gujarat University was conceived in the minds of some learned men in the 1920s like Gandhiji, Sardar Patel, Acharya Anandshankar B. Dhruva, Dada Saheb Mavlankar, Kasturbhai Lalbhai and many others. However, the University came into existence only after 1947. In 1949, the University was incorporated under the Gujarat University Act of the State Government ‘as a teaching and affiliating University.’ 

During the course of its life of more than five decades, the University has seen the establishment of seven more Universities which were carved out of the jurisdiction of the Gujarat University, viz., Sardar Patel University, Saurashtra University, Bhavnagar University, South Gujarat University, Gujarat Ayurveda University, Gujarat Agricultural University and North Gujarat University. 

Even then, the Gujarat University is the largest university in the state catering to the needs of higher education of more than four lakh students scattered over 286 colleges, 22 recognised institutions and 24 approved institutions. There are 36 Post-Graduate University departments and 221 P.G. Centres. New 140250 students are enrolled at under graduate level and Post Graduate level in academic year 2016-17.

New 140250 students are enrolled at under graduate level and Post Graduate level for academic year 2016-17. Total around  400000 students  are presently studying in the university departments, affiliated colleges and recognized institutes.

Gujarat University is an affiliating University at the under-graduate level, while it is a teaching one at the post-graduate level.
