We are proud to introduce the University of Sargodha as a major public sector University in the province of Punjab, Pakistan. It started its journey in 1929 with the establishment of De’Montmorency College, later renamed as Government College, which was awarded the University Charter in 2002.
With its main campus located in Sargodha city, Agriculture college and Medical college in its suburbs, along with one sub-campus in Bhakkar, the University presently has around 24,000 students and 800 faculty members, including 300 PhDs, in 21 departments, three institutes, one school, and five constituent colleges that come under the seven faculties of Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities, Sciences, Agriculture, Pharmacy, Medical and Health Sciences, Engineering and Technology.

Over a dozen hostels accommodate all female students and a limited number of male students. With an affordable fee structure, the University provides a host of scholarships, internships and business opportunities to the needy and meritorious students. While the Internship Program and Career Development Centre prepare the students for competitive future careers through hands-on training, two E-Rozgaar centres located at the main campus and sub-campus enable them to earn through online freelance entrepreneurship. The Incubation Centre offers the creative students with an opportunity to start productive careers before graduation.
Its main campus, located in the heart of Sargodha city, is green and serene. The University prioritizes the promotion of critical learning and scholarship among its students and young faculty. Each semester, it remains abuzz with a variety of scholarly, co-curricular and sports activities, including seminars and conferences, sports gala and literary festival. The University also runs an FM radio station, offering infotainment and education to students and people of the region.
To ensure productive research, the University has established vibrant institutions, including the Office of Research, Innovation and Commercialization, and Quality Enhancement Cell, which has helped register several international patents for faculty in sciences and agriculture, besides funding research projects and publications and linking academic research with the local economy. The University runs a Citrus Nursery and produces its own mineral water, KhusAab, for faculty, staff and students. It also has a strong tradition of community service, with its Medical Complex and Research Centre offering telemedicine, OPD, pharmacy and diagnostic services to university students and staff as well as the people of the city.
Sargodha University has academic exchange agreements with major Chinese Agriculture Universities, including Lanzhou University, and South China Agriculture University. It also has collaborations with the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, Worldwide Fund for Nature and several other prominent national and institutions of advanced research and education. In 2019, Pakistan’s fifth Confucius Institute was established at the University in collaboration with Henan Normal University in China.
