Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia approved the funds of INR 2306.58 crores for creating state-of-the-art infrastructure at upcoming campuses of Ambedkar University, the statement said.

Sisodia further added that at present the University is able to accommodate more than 4000 students, however, with the creation of two more new campuses, it will increase to 30,000.  The upcoming Ambedkar University campus at Rohini will be built at the cost of INR 1107.56 crore.

The varsity's campus will be spread over 1,64,130 sqm and will accommodate over 10,000 students. The Dheerpur campus, spreading over 2,00,759 sqm, will be built at the cost of INR 1,199.02 crore. It will have the capacity to accommodate over 16,000 students.

As per the government communique, the campuses will have multi-story academic blocks and auditoriums along with health centers, convention blocks, MLCP, administration blocks, library blocks, amphitheaters, guest houses, and separate hostels for girls and boys.Different types of residential campuses will also be set up in both the campuses.
