The Central University of Jharkhand came into being under the Central Universities Act 2009. The University started with a vision to specially focus on relevant present age educational drives with an emphasis on research in cutting edge technologies.The present campus of the University is located at Brambe, a 25 km drive away from Ranchi city, in the State of Jharkhand, India. It is a beautiful and vibrant green campus, with classrooms and hostels blending well with the environment. The classroom complex is located inside a mango orchard and the hostels are surrounded by tall sal trees. In order to preserve the trees, one can find some inside the rooms and growing through the roofs. With the State Government of Jharkhand allotting land for its permanent campus at Cheri-Manatu, about 10 kms off Ranchi city, construction work has started with a plan to create a campus worth visiting and staying in.
