  • The university is one of the largest in chennai. The main university campus is located near marina beach. Their study centers are not so effective. Need to improve. They are shifting to online to simplify their process yet information for distance education students are not properly distributed. Completed my B.Sc psychology degree here. Yet to get my provisional certificate. Phew..

  • I have uSed only library.We hv simple magazines n newspapers, not so good nor bad. Its okay for reading without noise.

  • Procrastination alert!! They are bit slower to be enthusiastic. Mouth and deeds ain't same.

  • One of the Best Universities of the world but majority of staff are very lethargic to work on any aspect. Pathetic experience. Hope to see some change for its great produce.
