Established in Year:

The Central University of Karnataka (CUK) has been established by an Act of the Parliament (No. 3 of 2009) at Gulbarga, Karnataka. It is one of the 16 new Central Universities established by the Government of India during the UGC XI Plan Period to address to the concerns of ‘equity and access’ and to increase the access to quality higher education by people in less educationally developed districts which have a Graduate Enrolment Ratio of less than the national average of 11%.

The CUK, with its territorial jurisdiction all over Karnataka has been initiated its activities from the academic year beginning August 2009 in keeping with the philosophy of achieving and maintaining the highest levels of academic excellence, sensitivity to equity and access in enrolment and recruitment and emerging as a premier national educational and research institution in the country.

621 acres of land at Kadaganchi Suntanur villages on the Gulbarga-Waghdhari Inter-State Highway in Aland taluka identified by the Karnataka State Government has been handed over to the university, where the work of construction of boundary wall is nearing completion and work on various buildings for the first phase of campus development will begin soon. The university is functioning from its temporary premises at the IInd floor of Karya Soudha, Gulbarga University Campus where the administrative office, classrooms, library, computer lab and other infrastructure is presently located.


  • To disseminate and advance knowledge by providing instructional and research facilities in such branches of learning as it may deem fit.

  • To make special provisions for integrated courses in humanities, social sciences, science and technology in its educational programmes.

  • To take appropriate measures for promoting innovations in teaching-learning process and inter- disciplinary studies and research.

  • To educate and train manpower for the development of the country.

  • To establish linkages with industries for the promotion of science and technology; and to pay special attention to the improvement of the social and economic conditions and welfare of the people, their intellectual, academic and cultural development.

The University is aware of its being a 21st century institution in an India that is fast emerging as a global hub of skilled and trained manpower and an important player in knowledge economy. It is thus necessary that new universities take an active and synergetic role in evolving as socially conscious beacons of knowledge by constantly innovating and updating knowledge and information. The CUK keenly identifies with these thoughts and will strive to be a path-breaker in its academic endeavours both in terms of the content and quality of teaching. A strong interdisciplinary approach, coupled with a cafeteria based credit semester system is thus the natural choice for this new university.
