Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai University

The Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai University is a university located in the Sindh province of Pakistan.


Initial foundation

In 1974-75 the University of Sindh with its solitary campus in Jamshoro could not keep pace with the growing need of the Sindh Province for higher education. Another campus was therefore set up at Khairpur Mirs, named after the national poet of Sindh, Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai. The campus was meant to provide higher education facilities in various modern and scientific fields to the people the northern part of the Province of Sindh, which had a rich tradition of producing highly educated and intelligent people.

Full university status

In 1986 the Sindh provincial assembly passed an act to make the campus a fully-fledged and independent university. The Act came into force in 1987, making Shah Abdul Latif University, functional. The present campus of the University covers an area of 291 acres of lush green lawns, playgrounds, and trees. The landscape of the University includes three canals nearby which serve as picnic spots for the students and the faculty. The University has over 4000 students in various programmes. There are 3500 undergraduate and 1500 graduate students. About 75 percent of students are male and 25 percent female. Despite seven student hostels (including three for females), the University has also provided an arranged transport facility for students, and the majority of them commute daily from their homes.
