  • The place is amazing for walks. You can get ur car/bike here. There's plenty of parking available everywhere. The place is lush green, full of greenery. It's even better during monsoon season. Temperature is usually 1-2 degrees lower than city temperature. You can play football, basketball anytime during the day. There's a huge library for students who study in Pune University. There is a gymkhana which is not expensive and less crowded too.
  • Was an exchange student (European) here 2014-2015. The education is alright in my experience. However, this campus lacks some freedom and is quite segregated, both between men and women and international and Indian students. A female and a male were for example not allowed to sit next to each other on campus after 8 PM, even in well lit areas within the guards' sight, and even if they are studying together. I would recommend that you choose a less conservative university, like I've heard Symbiosis is, if this matters to you.
  • Good University for all Education. Savitribai Phule Pune University, one of the premier universities in India, is positioned in the North-western part of Pune city. The university attracts many foreign students due to its excellent facilities. It offers good accommodation facility. There is a provision of hostel for the students. There is a well-stocked library containing plenty of books regarding various subjects. The university offers different scholarships to the students.
  • Amazing place for walking, running, cycling.There is available cycle on rent which sponsor by zoomcar and ofo. Smart city smart people.
