  • The university is one of the largest in chennai. The main university campus is located near marina beach. Their study centers are not so effective. Need to improve. They are shifting to online to simplify their process yet information for distance education students are not properly distributed. Completed my B.Sc psychology degree here. Yet to get my provisional certificate. Phew..
  • I have uSed only library.We hv simple magazines n newspapers, not so good nor bad. Its okay for reading without noise.

At present, there are 73 academic departments grouped under 18 schools, covering diverse areas such as sciences, social sciences, humanities, management and medicine along with 109 affiliated colleges and 52 approved research institutions.

Abdul Kalam, and several notable mathematicians including Srinivasa Ramanujan.
  • One of the Best Universities of the world but majority of staff are very lethargic to work on any aspect. Pathetic experience. Hope to see some change for its great produce.
