It came into existence on 2nd January 1967 being inaugurated by Dr. A.N. Khosla, the then Governor of Orissa and the first Chancellor of the University. The university was later shifted to the present site known as Bhanja Bihar, named after the celebrated poet of Orissa, Kabisamrat Upendra Bhanja. Spread over an area of about two hundred fifty acres, the university is twelve kilometres away from the city of Berhampur and Gopalpur and five kilometres from Gopalpur beach. On the whole for past many decades the university has remained as the symbol of glory and prosperity for the people of South Orissa. Though the university has completed 37 years and has carved for itself a place of pride in the academic map of the country, yet it has miles and miles ahead to go in the service of the students, schloars and society and the country at large.
