Updated on: Nov 19, 2014

The Mohanlal Sukhadia University in Udaipur, founded under the UGC Act is one of the most well-known Universities in Rajasthan. It is celebrated for its many departments and also its pledge to offer excellence in the field of academics. The University has been given B++ certification by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council, NAAC. 

There are 110 affiliated colleges and 4 constituent colleges that come under the University. Its jurisdiction spreads over these 6 districts: Udaipur, Chittorgarh, Rajasmand, Banswara, Dungarpur and Sirohi. 

In the tribal area of Southern Rajasthan, the University was named ‘Udaipur University’ and its headquarters were also in Udaipur. Before being a multi-departmental University in 1964, it was an agricultural University when it began. In 1984, it was renamed as the Mohanlal Sukhadia University in memory of the Late Sh. Mohanlal Sukhadia, the engineer of modern Rajasthan.

The university conducts graduate and post-graduate courses through different branches. The Ph.D. programmes are offered all year round. Admissions for other courses are displayed through specific notices and they are open from June to July annually.


Being situated in Aravalli Hill inhabited by the tribal community, the area is rich in heritage which also celebrates its striking landscape and resources.

The University consists of two campus grounds. The M.B College is part of the old campus. All departments of Science (University College of Science), Commerce (University College of Commerce and Management Studies) and Geology are found here. Also the girls’ hostel, University guest house, professors’ quarters, teachers’ quarters and the M.B. Main Hostel can be found here. The campus is 2.5kms from railway station, 2kms from bus stand and is located on the Udaipur-Chitorgarh road (Udaipur airport Road).

The Home Science College and C.T.A.E of MaharanaPratap Agricultural and Technology University can be found close to MLSU. The new campus is around 4km from the railway station or the bus stand headed for the Ashok Nagar-Ayad region.


The departments of Science and Computer Application declare that the University has good research facilities for its students. The University is also furnished with lathe, milling and drilling machines, electronic testing and measuring equipment etc. The students of M.Sc.

There are 7 libraries along with the University Central Library, College of Science Library, College of Social Science & Humanities Library, College of Commerce & Management Library, College of Law Library, Faculty of Management Studies Library, and University Department of Geology Library. The library is considered as the soul of the University that injects wisdom and knowledge in the students.

Eligible students are provided accommodation through the hostel. The Science hostel is on the old station road where the science students lodge. The Nehru hostel contains two blocks – A and B which is located near SevashramChouraya. Also, in the A block, accommodation is available for foreign students in the international wing. The A block is only for students of commerce and management and the B block is for Social Sciences, Humanities and Law.

The University’s girl’s hostel is in the old campus (M.B. College) on Durga Nursery Marg and the women's hostel is in Ravindra Nagar, Udaipur. The research students from all departments can lodge at the Research Hostel near the Science Hostel.

The notice board displays information about the list of classes and the closing date for fees for each department. A separate postal reminder is not sent. All admissions are conducted by the head of the each department for M.Sc. courses.

Students are admitted on the basis of marks obtained in Senior Secondary or equivalent examination for many of the courses offered.
