Puducherry is a Union Territory with one of the highest levels of quality of life in the country with excellent physical infrastructure and almost a hundred per cent literacy level. It is also the place where Sri Aurobindo and the Mother chose to stay and their writings remain a tremendous source of spiritual awakening that emphasizes the progress of humanity and its spiritual brotherhood. A unique experimental city, Auroville, the brainchild of the Mother, whose inhabitants are drawn from all parts of the world, is situated on the outskirts of the city. Puducherry, which still carries several marks of French culture and heritage, was also the place where the national poet Shri Subramania Bharathiar wrote several of his masterpieces that fanned the flames of freedom and also enriched modern Tamil literature. Bharathidasan, a staunch disciple of Subramania Bharathiar, whose poems stressed social revolution and emancipation of women, was also an eminent son of Puducherry. Therefore, it is, indeed, in the fitness of things that this city with such an illustrious history should also have the distinction of housing a Central University that would meet the needs of the people of the Southern states of India in general and those of Puducherry in particular, for higher education.
The main campus of the University has an area of 780 acres spread on either side of the East Coast Road with the large chunk on the landward side of the road. The land is an invaluable gift from the people and the Government of Puducherry for the establishment of the University. The land gently rolls down to the beaches and is interspersed with lovely woods. Cut by a picturesque and deep ravine, this idyllic campus is on the fast track to developing into an ideal breeding ground for innovation and creativity.
The University is fully supported by the University Grants Commission. The University is a member of the Association of Indian Universities and the Association of Commonwealth Universities.

The teaching faculty consists of more than 180 active and erudite members in different Schools, Departments and Centres. Currently, there are around 1,600 students pursuing their post-graduate and doctoral programmes on the campus. These apart, several thousand students on the rolls of the University through the Community College, the Directorate of Distance Education and 68 affiliated colleges, contribute to the richness of the University's learning experience.

The University is academically organized at several levels for efficient functioning. The teaching and research is carried out in the Schools which facilitate and promote inter-disciplinary work. Each School consists of several departments where teaching programmes in specific subject area are conducted.

The primary objective of all the academic effort is to build a strong foundation with all necessary infrastructures for expanding the horizons of knowledge and disseminate it efficiently. Extension activities are also an integral part of the Universitys activities.

The University's commitment to innovation in the field of education is reflected in several spheres. It was the first University in India to provide the students with choice of the elective courses they want to study in addition to the major subject area under the so called Choice Based Credit System (CBCS). The students can now choose courses from other Departments and Schools to augment their knowledge base, so that they can face the world on their graduation with confidence.
