About Shivaji University

Inaugurated by the then President of India, Dr. Radhakrishnan on November 18, 1962, Shivaji University was mainly established to cater to the regional higher educational needs of South Maharashtra. The University’s jurisdiction spreads over districts of Kolhapur, Sangli, and Satara. The University began to function with thirty-four affiliated colleges and approximately 14000 students and five post-graduate departments. That has gone up to 280 affiliated colleges and 3,00,000 students and thirty-four post graduate departments. The university has geared up to meet the modern day demands with the establishment of Centre for Women’s Studies and by expanding activities with programs of Adult and Continuing Education and Shramik Vidyapeeth. The University campus spreads over a huge area and is also surrounded by verdant green patches making the atmosphere just right for the mind to focus on studies. Administrative offices are closed on the second and fourth Saturdays of every month. On other days, the University office works from 10.20 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. with lunch time from 2.00 p.m. to 2.30 p.m.
