Magadh University enjoys the honour of being the largest university in Bihar with its 19 constituent and about 39 affiliated colleges,
1 Engineering college, 2 Law colleges and 2 Dental colleges spread over the districts of Gaya, Nawada, Jehanabad, Arwal and Aurangabad. This
serene centre of learning nestles in the vast area of land in the vicinity of Bodh-Gaya, the holy seat of Lord Buddha's enlightenment.
It beams with the natural beauty of trees and plants of fruits and flowers, parks and gardens studding the silver sheet of the land of the university campus.
Nature stands here in sharp contrast with big buildings, the stadium, pitched as well as concrete roads, and bare pieces of land that are but essential to run the offices,
to actuate academic activities in different post-graduate departments, to facilitate games and sports, to help smooth movement, to accord accommodation to
the employees and guests and to lend a hand to desirable furtherance of infrastructures on the campus. Magadh University was established on March 1,
1962 as a consequence of the earnest wishes and efforts of the intellectuals and educationists of the Magadh region and also its foundation echoed the
conversion of the long cherished dream of the people of Magadh into reality.
