The campus will be developed in a phased manner to create not just an institution where research and teaching take place, but to create a vibrant university township with a growing population of more than 450,000. The township will give rise to schools, recreational facilities, support services, parks, cultural institutions and a research park. The interaction between the University, the research park and the business incubator will lead to an interdependent and economically generative research and educational complex.
The campus will also include a developed central water body, Olympic caliber sports facilities and support infrastructure to nurture a growing community around the University complex. The Vedanta university area will be an attractive destination with meaningful employment opportunities, a culture education, world-class living standards, and unsurpassed infrastructure.
