About University

Guru Nanak Dev University was established on November 24, 1969 to mark the 500th birth Anniversary of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. It is both a residential and affiliating university.

Guru Nanak Dev University has made phenomenal progress in the field of sports in the Inter-University, National and International competitions. The Department of Physical Education (Allied Teaching) was set up in 1970. The Department started organizing Inter-College tournaments from 1970 itself and sent teams for the Inter-Varsity tournaments for the first time in 1971.

At the very outset Sports Committees for men and women were formed to guide and co-ordinate the sports activities and to organize games and sports in the affiliated colleges to raise the university teams for Inter-University and other tournaments. Each year, the Department of Physical Education organized 105 Inter-College (Men and Women) tournaments.

On the basis of the performance in the Inter-College tournaments, various universities teams are selected for participation in the Inter-University Tournaments. Each year about 80 university (Men & Women) teams are sent to participate in the Inter-University competitions. Prior to participation in the Inter-Varsity competitions, coaching camps are organized for a duration of 15-20 days so as to give them technical and scientific training. In order to attain and maintain excellence in sports, coaching camps for selected men and women players are organized at a Hill Station during summer vacation for imparting off-season physical fitness.
