Our Campus


NLUO is housed in its own campus near Naraj, at the western extreme of Cuttack. The area is noted for its scenic beauty. The mighty river Mahanadi and its distributary Kathajodi bifurcate at this point. The Naraj Reservoir is located just a ten-minute walk away, and the locality boasts several other picturesque locations. The campus is spread over 50 acres, with twenty more acres scheduled to be added soon. Once completed, it will house about 700 students along with faculty members and other staff. It is designed to be eco-friendly, incorporating features such as rain-water harvesting measures. The academic block and the hostels are already functional. The academic block is scheduled to become fully air-conditioned very soon. Planned extensions include language labs, gym and other sports facilities, football and cricket grounds, a thousand-seater auditorium, an open-air amphitheatre, a multi-cuisine food court and, most important, a dedicated library building. The lecture halls are airy, spacious, well-lit, and comfortable. They feature state-of -the-art audio-visual equipment, including LCD projectors, dedicated sound systems, and electronic blackboards (which automatically generate printouts of what has been written on them). It goes without saying that these equipment are not meant to be mere showpieces. Courses are designed in order to make optimum use of them; as a result, PowerPoint presentations, film screenings, and other multimedia techniques form an integral aspect of NLUO’s undergraduate and postgraduate curricula.
The University has acquired this year Basketball, Volleyball and Tennis Courts. In addition to this, equipment for indoor games like table tennis and carom are already present in all the hostels of the university.
