The university has added a variety of up-to-date books, a video conference room, a seminar hall, Labs for sciences and computer sciences and classrooms are equipped with state of the art furniture and scientific equipment to make the learning process smoother. The acquisition of land for university is in process. Govt. of AJ&K has allocated 2025 kanals of land at District Headquarters Bagh for construction of this university.
