A public state university named the University of Mysore is located in Mysore, Karnataka, India. The University was established when Krishna raja Wadiyar IV was Maharaja of Mysore. The University is accredited by the University Grants Commission (UGC) for providing online and on-campus higher education degree programmes.

University of Mysore

The official opening took place on July 27, 1916. The Maharaja of Mysore served as the institution's first chancellor, while H. V. Nanjundaiah served as the institution's first vice-chancellor. First established in Karnataka, sixth in India, and headed by a non-British government, the University was also a first for the nation. The University Grants Commission gave its status on March 3, 1956, and became an independent state university of the affiliating type.

The Mysore University Library also has 2,400 journal titles, 100,000 volumes of magazines, and about 800,000 books. The main campus includes male and female dormitories, an auditorium, a theatre, and a swimming pool. As of July 2013, the National Assessment and Accreditation Council gave the University of Mysore accreditation with a "Grade A." (NAAC).


In 2005, Dalhousie University of Canada, IIIT, Bangalore, and three U.S. universities joined forces to develop the International School of Information Management. ISIM is home to academicians from these collaborative institutions.

It was established in 2004 as the Third Sector Research Resource Center (TSRRS). The centre's primary objective is to "undertake and encourage interdisciplinary studies and research in the field of civil society," with the secondary aim of creating and providing diploma and master's programs in managing non-profit enterprises.

The University's Department of Law and Mysore University School of Justice have combined (MUSJ). To raise the standard of legal education in Karnataka, MUSJ has developed a program leading to a degree in law as part of the University's effort to provide five-year integrated courses to create professionals with in-depth knowledge. An MoU was signed by the University of Mysore and the Institute of Astrophysics to construct a planetarium in Mysore.
