Panjab University is the most happening place in Chandigarh for all the youth gathers here to learn and to enjoy the student life. The University caters to the needs of every student as it has fifteen departments. There is always a long queue not only outside but also inside the Central Library of the University- The A.C. Joshi Library. The library remains open until night for the students and Civil Services Aspirants. It is well-equipped with computers and good amount of books. Near the Central Library there is Student Centre which is not the place only to have fun but you can also feast on yummy cuisines. Students from all over the University join there for celebrating the festivals together with great fervour and enthusiasm. The students also perform street plays for spreading awareness among the people regarding social evils and how to curb them. The University has very learned professors and the students are also very cooperative. The University also organizes NSS camps for the welfare of mankind. Sports tournaments are also organised in every department and medals and trophies are given to the winners. The students of University Institute of Legal Studies have also won the most prestigious Moot Court Competition- The Henry Dunant Moot Court Competition 2016. The Law Department of the University has started giving Placements to its students and an MOU with Pepperdine University, USA which is ranked One for its LL.M. program in Alternative Dispute Redressal has been signed. Scholarship benefits have also been given under this program. Overall, the University is very affordable and it also provides Scholarships to the students who belong to the economically weaker sections of the society.

Best part of life to have memories about

College life is one where we explore our thoughts and gain new things out of that. My university is a great platform for me to make my dreams come true. Faculty in between is so appreciative. Overall infrastructure is good. I learned a lot of things here.

P.U life

We would not write long stories but would mention that I'm studying India's topmost universities.It's the first year under choice based credit system.according to us, it's really a very student-friendly system in which children are allowed to choose subjects according to their choice.This should also be noted that university is not having that good infrastructure.I have not yet experienced it but our seniors tell that university doesn't provide that good placement.the campus hostel washrooms should be cleaner and shouldn't have rats, lizards etc. in rooms.The faculty of every department is really good and very qualified.the student crowd of campus is really very good.,and last but no least in terms of affordability university is cheap as my parents have more money on schooling than in my graduation.All in all no doubt university provides a great exposure to students.the campus life is really good.One must fully enjoy it.

Very good college with lots of opportunities to explore

It's been three years since I have been here and every year the experience of being here has only enhanced. I have been to several national and inter college moot competitions and won some of them too. Throughout the year's many opportunities for internships came and I did some very good interns. The law fest and other university fests are a delight to be a part of. I'm a hosteller and the hostel life is pretty good. It has its own perks and pitfalls but mostly perks cover up the downsides so good that it made me give 4 stars to hostel life. I'm a player and I must say the sports department here is remarkably good. There are many playgrounds and stadiums for different sports and it harbours many good players. even if you are not a player you can start from scratch here. And the last thing I want to say is that student crowd here is very vibrant with almost everyone being good in one area or another.
