  • 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.
  • Corrupt people. They just want money. They will not do your work for days and make you sit whole day. Very bad people. These people must be taught a lesson.
  • University clearly lacks a vision for future. Outdated syllabus being taught in all the streams be it Engineering, Medicines, Media or any other stream. I would rate it moderate in terms of code of conduct but there as well is a huge scope of improvement. The leadership does not look serious about the future. No modern aids or technology being implemented in any of the departments, everything is mostly manual. Even after submitting a form online you need to manually go and pay the fees and submit the copy of the form again that you had submitted online.. I mean what's the logic???
  • Place for hanging out !! Has good grounds for playing cricket !! Canteen also available here along with drinking water . Greenary wow !!
  • 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.
